Abstract: T1.00107 : Quantum Simulation using Next Generation Degenerate Fermi Gas Apparatus
Ultracold neutral atoms in optical lattices are a perfect toy model to simulate and study Hubbard model physics relevant to high temperature superconductivity and other exotic phases of matter. We present the design and construction of a novel apparatus to study these exciting condensed matter systems. We also investigate the viability of a various transport schemes to transport a quantum-degenerate Fermi gas of ultracold lithium atoms into a Science Chamber. The high optical access of the science chamber permits innovative probing and manipulation of BECs.
