  • Introduction why bother?

  • Ultracold trapped dipolar Bose gases
  • Ultracold trapped dipolar Fermi gases
  • Ultracold dipolar gases in optical lattices
  • Richness of quantum phases
  • Superchemistry in a lattice
  • Metastable states Toward quantum memories?
  • Ultracold dipolar gases in artificial magnetic
  • Rotating gases
  • Toward fractional quantum Hall effect
  • Wigner cristals?

Why is this interesting?
  • The interaction is anisotropic (partially
  • Long-range interaction
  • The properties of the ultracold gas are
    critically dependent on the trap geometry!

Pancake traps (wrltwz )
Critical trap aspect ratio l (wr/wz ) 1/2 0.4
  • Soft pancake traps, l lt l lt 1, as well as cigar
    ones, l 1

-The sign of the interaction V changes by
increasing Nd2
The condensate goes from pancake to cigar-shape!
  • Hard pancake traps ( llt l)
  • The condensate aspect ratio decreases with Nd 2
  • For wrltltwz

  • existence of metastable states?

Extended Bose-Hubbard model
Dipolar lattice gas Ground states, metastable
Metastable states do they play a role in
cooling dynamics? Are they reachable?
Dipolar lattice gas The fate of metastable
They appear spontaneously and frequently in
cooling dynamics! But, using supetlattice
techniques they can be prepared on
demand! They lifetimes are long, according
to generalized instanton theory! Quantum
They can be unambigiously detected using noise
corelations spectroscopy!!!

Rotating 2D Dipolar Fermi Gases,
Rotating systems
  • Dipolar Fermi particles in a harmonic trap
  • Rotation nucleates
  • Tuning the rotational frequency determines nature
    of the system
  • ? evolution from weakly to strongly
    correlated regime

FQHE states in rotating dipolar Fermi gases
  • System ingredients
  • two-dimensional system ? quasi-2D harmonic
  • perpendicular magnetic field ? rotating trap
  • long-range potential ? dipole-dipole interactions
  • quasi-particle excitations ? laser piercing of
    the probe
  • filling fraction of Landau levels ? fermionic

Fractional quantum Hall regime
  • Close to critical rotation system enters FQHE

Quasi-particle excitations I
  • State with a quasi-hole at x0 represented by
  • Excitation gap ?? derived from
  • two-particle correlation functions gqh and g0 by

Ground state analysis
  • Structures are derived from correlation functions

solely provides diagonal part of density matrix
reveals hidden structure patterns
Ground state phases
System starts from an ideal Fermi gas,
global correlations manifest themselves
regular bump-hole structures are formed
Ground state phases II
  • Regular pattern changes system undergoes
    drastic change,

structure reorganizes until the Laughlin state
is manifested
Quasi-particle excitations II
  • To compare with thermodynamic limit calculations!
    finite size filling factor description

Competion Laughlin versus Wigner crystal
  • Quantum phase transition Laughlin to Wigner
    crystal occurs below filling factors 1/7

Note for trapped dipolar gases Wigner crystal
appears for large densities!!! For rotating
dipolar gases for small densities!!! H.
