Unconventional Phases of Ultracold Quantum Matter with Competing Interactions

Project description

Research could reveal exotic states of matter in ultracold atoms

In dilute quantum fluids, which exhibit quantum mechanical effects at the macroscopic level, many-body interactions between electrons or atoms play a key role in determining physical properties. These interactions can give rise to exotic phases of matter with unusual characteristics. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the UltraComp project is investigating novel states of matter in ultracold atoms. The project will also conduct experiments to study three novel phases of matter with unconventional properties: supersolids, ultradilute quantum droplets and supersolid-like liquids. Their study will help deepen understanding of beyond-mean-field effects in many-body systems.
