We experimentally investigate the mix-dimensional scattering occurring when the collisional partners live in different dimensions. We employ a binary mixture of ultracold atoms and exploit a species-selective 1D optical lattice to confine only one atomic species in 2D. By applying an external magnetic field in proximity of a Feshbach resonance, we adjust the free-space scattering length to observe a series of resonances in mixed dimensions. By monitoring 3-body inelastic losses, we measure the… Expand
Bose-Bose mixtures in reduced dimensions
The two-body scattering is greatly modified in reduced dimensions. With ultracold atoms, low dimensional configurations are routinely accessible thanks to the use of optical lattices which allowExpand
Resonances in ultracold collisions confined by atomic traps
We have developed a method for treating ultracold pair collisions in confined geometry of tight atomic waveguides. With this approach we have predicted and analyzed a few novel resonant andExpand
Resonances in ultracold dipolar atomic and molecular gases
A previously developed approach for the numerical treatment of two particles that are confined in a finite optical-lattice potential and interact via an arbitrary isotropic interaction potential hasExpand
Fermi–Bose mixture in mixed dimensions
One of the challenging goals in the studies of many-body physics with ultracold atoms is the creation of a topological $p_{x} + ip_{y}$ superfluid for identical fermions in two dimensions (2D). TheExpand
Optical traps for Ultracold Metastable Helium atoms
The thematics treated in this manuscript illustrate two specificities of ultracold metastable Helium gases: the ability to compare experimental measurement with precise theoretical evaluationsExpand
Matter Waves in Reduced Dimensions: Dipolar-Induced Resonances and Atomic Artificial Crystals
The experimental achievement of Bose-Einstein condensation and Fermi degeneracy with ultracold gases boosted tremendous progresses both in theoretical methods and in the development of newExpand
Exotic superfluidity and pairing phenomena in atomic Fermi gases in mixed dimensions
TLDR
It is found that the effective dimensionality of the non-interacting lattice component can evolve from quasi-3D to quasi-1D, leading to strong Fermi surface mismatch, and the system becomes effectively quasi-two dimensional in the BEC regime. Expand
BCS-BEC crossover in mix-dimensional Fermi gases
Abstract We investigate a mix-dimensional Fermi-Fermi mixtures in which one species is confined in two-dimensional (2D) space while the other is free in three-dimensional space (3D). We determine theExpand
Confinement-Induced Resonances
Abstract Confinement-induced resonances (CIRs) arise when particle scattering takes place in the presence of an external potential that spatially confines the motion of the particles. One finds thatExpand
The few-atom problem
These lectures contain a theoretical introduction to the few-body problem with short-range resonant binary interactions. In the first part we discuss the effective range expansion for the two-bodyExpand
