Single-shot images are the standard readout of experiments with ultracold atoms -- the tarnished looking glass into their many-body physics. The efficient extraction of observables from single-shot images is thus crucial. Here, we demonstrate how artificial neural networks can optimize this extraction. In contrast to standard averaging approaches, machine learning allows both one- and two-particle densities to be accurately obtained from a drastically reduced number of single-shot images…

Over the past years, machine learning has emerged as a powerful computational tool to tackle complex problems over a broad range of scientific disciplines. In particular, artificial neural networks
Mott transition in a cavity-boson system: A quantitative comparison between theory and experiment
The competition between short-range and cavity-mediated infinite-range interactions in a cavity-boson system leads to the existence of a superfluid phase and a Mott-insulator phase within the


Classifying snapshots of the doped Hubbard model with machine learning
This work compares the data from an experimental realization of the two-dimensional Fermi-Hubbard model to two theoretical approaches: a doped quantum spin liquid state of resonating valence bond type, and the geometric string theory, describing a state with hidden spin order.
Single-particle-sensitive imaging of freely propagating ultracold atoms
We present a novel imaging system for ultracold quantum gases in expansion. After release from a confining potential, atoms fall through a sheet of resonant excitation laser light and the emitted
Single-atom-resolved fluorescence imaging of an atomic Mott insulator
Fluorescence imaging of strongly interacting bosonic Mott insulators in an optical lattice with single-atom and single-site resolution is reported, which fully reconstructs the atom distribution on the lattice and identifies individual excitations with high fidelity.
Neural-network quantum state tomography
It is demonstrated that machine learning allows one to reconstruct traditionally challenging many-body quantities—such as the entanglement entropy—from simple, experimentally accessible measurements, and can benefit existing and future generations of devices.
