  • Ultracold quantum gases in optical lattices have been used to study a wide range of many-body effects. Nearly all experiments so far, however, have been performed in cubic optical lattice structures. Now a ‘honeycomb’ lattice structure has been realized. The approach promises insight into materials with hexagonal crystal symmetries, such as graphene or carbon nanotubes.
