Realization of fractional Chern insulators in the thin-torus limit with ultracold bosons

Topological states of interacting many-body systems are at the focus of current research due to the exotic properties of their elementary excitations. In this paper we suggest a realistic experimental setup for the realization of a simple version of such a phase. We show how δ-interacting bosons hopping on the links of a one-dimensional ladder can be used… CONTINUE READING
