We analyze the ground state properties of Bose-Fermi mixtures using a mean-field treatment of the boson-fermion interaction on a simple cubic lattice. In the deep superfluid limit of the bosonic sector and the BCS regime of the fermion sector, we derive BCS-type equations to determine the phase diagram of the system. We find a competition between a charge density wave and a superconducting phase. In the opposite limit, we study the Mott insulator to superfluid transition of the bosonic sector…

Induced pairing of fermionic impurities in a one-dimensional strongly correlated Bose gas

We investigate numerically the problem of few (one, two) noninteracting spin$-1/2$ fermions in a shallow harmonic trap coupled via contact repulsive interactions to a uniform one-dimensional bath of

Mixture of scalar bosons and two-color fermions in one dimension: Superfluid-insulator transitions

Superfluid-insulator transitions in a one-dimensional mixture of two-color fermions and scalar bosons are studied within the framework of the Bose-Fermi-Hubbard model. Zero-temperature phase diagrams

Insulator phases of a mixture of spinor fermions and hard-core bosons

We study numerically a one-dimensional mixture of spin-$\tfrac{1}{2}$ fermions and scalar bosons in the hard-core limit. Considering repulsive fermion-fermion and boson-fermion interactions, we find

Competing orders in a dipolar Bose-Fermi mixture on a square optical lattice: mean-field perspective

Abstract We consider a mixture of a two-component Fermi gas and a single-component dipolar Bose gas in a square optical lattice and reduce it into an effective Fermi system where the Fermi-Fermi

Mixtures of Bose and Fermi Superfluids

Manifestations of Quantum Physics at the thermodynamical level are found in a broadrange of physical systems. A famous example is superfluidity, discovered at the beginningof the 20th century and

We present a major update to QuSpin, SciPostPhys.2.1.003 – an open-source Python package for exact diagonalization and quantum dynamics of arbitrary boson, fermion and spin many-body systems,

Spin-selective insulators in Bose-Fermi mixtures

We investigate an imbalanced mixture composed of two-color fermions and scalar bosons in the hard-core limit, considering repulsive and attractive interspecies and intraspecies interactions. The

The computation of determinants plays a central role in diagrammatic Monte Carlo algorithms for strongly correlated systems. The evaluation of large numbers of determinants can often be the limiting



Bose-Fermi Mixtures: A Mean-Field Study

We study the low-energy properties of the spinful Bose-Fermi Hubbard model on a simple cubic lattice for attractive fermion-fermion and repulsive boson-boson interactions at half-filling for the

At half-filling, however, the phase diagram of the BFM is symmetric w.r.t. the hypersurface U bf = 0. A similar situation occurs in the pure Fermi-Hubbard model

  • Notice that the phases of the BFM will be different for U bf < 0 14
