Giant excitons in interaction

Recent articles in Nature Communications co-authored by Center leader Thomas Pohl, demonstrates how excited quantum states can be used to control and exploit strong interactions in semiconductors.

K-atoms (red balls) are flipped by a RF-pulse from a state |2> that does not interact with a surrounding Fermi gas (blue) to a state |1> that does. The properties of the interacting state were explored as a function of its concentration.

Stability and breakdown of Fermi polarons in a strongly interacting Fermi-Bose mixture

In a recent collaboration between Georg M. Bruun and the group of Rudi Grimm (Innsbruck), the effective interaction between Fermi polarons was explored.

Charged Polarons and Molecules in a BEC

Recent theoretical paper in Physical Review Letters by CCQ’s Esben Rohan Christensen and Georg M. Bruun, and former CCQ assistant professor Arturo Camacho-Guardian, who answer the question of what happens when you put an ion into a BEC.
