Quantum Gases in Optical Boxes

  title={Quantum Gases in Optical Boxes},
  author={N. Navon and Robert P. Smith and Z. Hadzibabic},
Advances in light shaping for optical trapping of neutral particles have led to the development of box traps for ultracold atoms and molecules. These traps have allowed the creation of homogeneous quantum gases and opened new possibilities for studies of many-body physics. They simplify the interpretation of experimental results, provide more direct connections with theory, and in some cases allow qualitatively new, hitherto impossible experiments. Here we review progress in this emerging field… Expand

Oscillations of a quasi-one-dimensional dipolar supersolid
The properties of a supersolid state (SS) in quasi-one-dimensional dipolar Bose–Einstein condensate is studied, considering two possible mechanisms of realization—due to repulsive three-body atomicExpand


Ultracold quantum gases in optical lattices
Artificial crystals of light, consisting of hundreds of thousands of optical microtraps, are routinely created by interfering optical laser beams. These so-called optical lattices act as versatileExpand
Bose Einstein Condensate in a Box
Bose-Einstein condensates have been produced in an optical box trap. This optical trap type has strong confinement in two directions comparable to that which is possible in an optical lattice, yetExpand

Using optical lattices to trap ultracold atoms provides a powerful platform for probing topological phases, analogues to those found in condensed matter. But as these systems are highly tunable, theyExpand
Box traps on an atom chip for one-dimensional quantum gases
We present the implementation of tailored trapping potentials for ultracold gases on an atom chip. We realize highly elongated traps with box-like confinement along the long, axial direction combinedExpand

This paper reviews recent experimental and theoretical progress concerning many-body phenomena in dilute, ultracold gases. It focuses on effects beyond standard weak-coupling descriptions, such asExpand
Designing arbitrary one-dimensional potentials on an atom chip.
Laser light shaped by a digital micro-mirror device is used to realize arbitrary optical dipole potentials for one-dimensional (1D) degenerate Bose gases of 87Rb trapped on an atom chip to address exciting questions in quantum thermodynamics and quantum simulations. Expand
Quantum Depletion of a Homogeneous Bose-Einstein Condensate.
The quantum depletion of an interacting homogeneous Bose-Einstein condensate is measured and the theory of Bogoliubov is confirmed and reversibly tunable by changing the strength of the interparticle interactions. Expand
Observation of Fermi Pressure in a Gas of Trapped Atoms
The attainment of simultaneous quantum degeneracy in a mixed gas of bosons (lithium-7) and fermions (lithsium-6) is reported and gives clear experimental evidence forquantum degeneracy. Expand
Compensation of gravity on cold atoms by a linear optical potential
We demonstrate gravity compensation for an ultracold gas of $^{87}$Rb atoms with a time-averaged optical potential. The position of a far-off-resonance beam is temporally modulated with anExpand
Macroscopic quantum interference from atomic tunnel arrays
Interference of atomic de Broglie waves tunneling from a vertical array of macroscopically populated traps has been observed, closely related to the ac Josephson effect observed in superconducting electronic systems. Expand
