Quantum antiferromagnet is of fundamental interest as it becomes a fertile ground for studying exotic many-body states including spin liquids and high-temperature superconductors. Compared with condensed matter systems, ultracold gases in optical lattices can be microscopically engineered and provide a unique opportunity for exploring bosonic magnetism and spin dynamics. Here, we report on the creation of a one-dimensional Heisenberg antiferromagnet with ultracold bosons. In a two-component…
