In a combined theory and experimental work, we study the elementary excitations of trapped dipolar quantum gases crossing from regular superfluid to supersolid. Our work is now published in PRL and summarized in the Synopsis by Sophia Chen.
On the occasion of the 350th anniversary of the foundation of the University of Innsbruck, the Italian ambassador to Austria, Sergio Barbanti, will visit our group. Professor Ferlaino will guide the ambassador, accompanied by the representative of the Innsbruck’s Italien-Zentrum Dr. Tasser and Ms Romeo, around the IQOQI’s and University’s labs.
In a joint work from the RARE and ERBIUM team as well as our theory collaborator from IQOQI, Rick van Bijnen, we have observed hallmarks of supersolidity in dipolar quantum gases of Erbium and Dysprosium. Our work is highlighted in a Viewpoint article in Physics by T. Donner.
