We theoretically investigate finite-temperature thermodynamics and demagnetization cooling of two-component Bose-Bose mixtures in a cubic optical lattice, by using bosonic dynamical mean-field theory (BDMFT). We calculate the finite-temperature phase diagram, and remarkably find that the system can be heated from the superfluid into the Mott insulator at low temperature, analogous to the Pomeranchuk effect in ${}^{3}$He. This provides a promising many-body cooling technique. We examine the…

Anisotropic pair superfluidity of trapped two-component Bose gases in an optical lattice
We theoretically investigate the pair-superfluid phase of two-component ultracold gases with attractive inter-species interactions in an optical lattice. We establish the phase diagram for filling
Competition of spin and charge excitations in the one-dimensional Hubbard model
Motivated by recent experiments with ultracold fermionic atoms in optical lattices, we study finite temperature magnetic correlations, as singlet and triplet correlations, and the double occupancy in
Cooling through quantum criticality and many-body effects in condensed matter and cold gases
This article reviews some recent developments for new cooling technologies in the fields of condensed matter physics and cold gases, both from an experimental and theoretical point of view. The main
Heteronuclear magnetisms with ultracold spinor bosonic gases in optical lattices
Motivated by recent realizations of spin-1 NaRb mixtures in the experiments, here we investigate heteronuclear magnetism in the Mott-insulating regime. Different from the identical mixtures where the
Quantum simulation of strongly correlated condensed matter systems
We review recent experimental and theoretical progress in realizing and simulating many-body phases of ultracold atoms in optical lattices, which gives access to analog quantum simulations of
Supersolidity of lattice bosons immersed in strongly correlated Rydberg dressed atoms
Recent experiments have illustrated that long range two-body interactions can be induced by laser coupling atoms to highly excited Rydberg states. Stimulated by this achievement, we study
Ultracold bosons with short-range interaction in regular optical lattices
Abstract During the last decade, many exciting phenomena have been experimentally observed and theoretically predicted for ultracold atoms in optical lattices. This paper reviews these rapid
Rotation-Symmetry-Enforced Coupling of Spin and Angular Momentum for p-Orbital Bosons.
TLDR
A mechanism of spontaneous generation of spin angular-momentum coupling with spinor atomic bosons loaded into p-orbital bands of a two-dimensional optical lattice with key ingredients attributed to spin-channel quantum fluctuations and an approximate rotation symmetry is proposed.
