We have created for the first time a dipolar quantum mixture by combining two highly
magnetic atomic species, Erbium and Dysprosium. The experiment has been conducted in the RARE Lab and we observe simultaneous quantum degeneracy of 5 Bose-Bose mixture and a Bose-Fermi one.
Since both elements offer several stable isotopes, we are able to
produce five different mixtures of double-dipolar Bose-Einstein
condensates and also a degenerate Bose-Fermi mixture. This achievement
is an important step towards realization of complex many-body quantum
states goverened by inter- and intraspecies interaction both of contact
and long-range nature.
