Significance Quantum phase transitions are characterized by a dramatic change of the ground-state behavior; famous examples include the appearance of magnetic order or superconductivity as a function of doping in cuprates. In this work, we explore how a system dynamically crosses such a transition and in particular, investigate in detail how coherence emerges when an initially incoherent Mott insulating system enters the superfluid regime. We present results from an experimental study using… Expand
