Cold atoms in optical lattices is the application of two formerly distinct aspects of physics: quantum gases from atomic physics and laser theory from quantum optics. Its use to simulate quantum phenomena and models in condensed matter physics is a growing field. The major goal is to use cold fermonic atoms in these superlattices for the simulations. We present here a theoretical proposal for simulating a spin ordering model using fermions. We demonstrate superexchange interaction in the double…

By dynamically modifying the potential bias between neighboring lattice sites, the magnitude and sign of the superexchange interaction can be controlled, thus allowing the system to be switched between antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic spin interactions.

Experimental realization of plaquette resonating valence-bond states with ultracold atoms in optical superlattices.

Direct experimental evidence is shown of a time-resolved valence-bond quantum resonance with ultracold bosonic atoms in an optical lattice by means of a superlattice structure that creates a three-dimensional array of independent four-site plaquettes, which the author can fully control and manipulate in parallel.

A Mott insulator of fermionic atoms in an optical lattice

The formation of a Mott insulator of a repulsively interacting two-component Fermi gas in an optical lattice is reported, identified by three features: a drastic suppression of doubly occupied lattice sites, a strong reduction of the compressibility inferred from the response of double occupancy to an increase in atom number, and the appearance of a gapped mode in the excitation spectrum.
