We show that an interplay between quantum effects, strong on-site ferromagnetic exchange interaction, and antiferromagnetic correlations in Kondo lattices can give rise to an exotic spin-orbit coupled metallic state in regimes where classical treatments predict a trivial insulating behavior. This phenomenon can be simulated with ultracold alkaline-earth fermionic atoms subject to a laser-induced magnetic field by observing dynamics of spin-charge excitations in quench experiments.

Interorbital spin exchange in a state-dependent optical lattice

This thesis reports on the creation of a state-dependent optical lattice for two-orbital ytterbium quantum gases and the observation of a tunable interorbital spin-exchange coupling between itinerant

Spin–orbit-coupled fermions in an optical lattice clock

TLDR
It is demonstrated that spin–orbit-coupled fermions can be engineered to occur naturally in a one-dimensional optical lattice clock and to study Bloch oscillations, spin–momentum locking and Van Hove singularities in the transition density of states.

Dynamics of interacting fermions under spin–orbit coupling in an optical lattice clock

Quantum statistics and symmetrization dictate that identical fermions do not interact via s-wave collisions. However, in the presence of spin–orbit coupling (SOC), fermions prepared in identical
