Dysprosium Quantum Gases
Dysprosium Quantum Gases

Quantum Bose and Fermi gases of dysprosium, first created by LevLab, possess extraordinarily large magnetic moments and spins, opening avenues to create novel quantum soft matter.

Many-Body Cavity QED

Quantum soft matter may be realized via BECs confined within multimode cavities: spin glasses, neural networks, and a novel quantum Brazvoskii transition to supersmectics and superglasses.

Atom Chip Microscope

Our cryogenic atom chip microscope scans Bose-Einstein condensates over surfaces to image electron transport in strongly correlated or topologically protected condensed matter materials.

About the Lab

LevLab explores uncharted regimes of strongly correlated and topological matter by pushing the experimental state-of-the-art in ultracold atomic physics, quantum optics, and condensed matter physics. At a billionth of a degree above absolute zero, laser-cooled and trapped gases of neutral atoms are among the coldest objects in the universe. Informed by quantum many-body theory, we employ quantum gases as versatile testbeds for exploring the organizing principles of novel quantum matter such as quantum glasses and quantum liquid crystals.

Current areas of focus:

  • Dysprosium quantum soft matter
  • Cryogenic atom chip microscopy
  • Quantum Brazovskii phase transition
  • Quantum glasses and neural networks
