Phase coherence in out-of-equilibrium supersolid states of ultracold dipolar atoms

Now in Nature Physics!

Supersolids are fluid and solid at the same time. In jointly collaboration work, together with Thierry Giamarchi, theoretical physicist from the University of Geneva, we have for the first time investigated what happens when such a state is brought out of balance. We discovered a soft form of solid of high interest for science. As we report in Nature Physics, we were also able to reverse the process and restore supersolidity.
