THEORY GROUP

In our theory group, we utilise state-of-the-art methods to model the experiments of the ERBIUM and Er-Dy LABs, and provide assistance in guiding future experiments into the exciting phenomena not yet explored in dipolar quantum gases. Recently, with Luis Santos (University of Hannover), we probed the one- to two-dimensional supersolid transition using numerical and analytical methods, closely matching results from our Er-Dy LAB.

The theory group was a new addition to the team at the Dipolar Quantum Gas Group in late 2020, and we’re excited to show you what we’re working on next! If you want to learn more about the Theory group, you can find more info in the publications and/or contact us.

Supersolids go circular! Our Er-Dy and theory labs collaborate together to realise supersolidity in round traps. We also investigate effective formation protocols for two-dimensional supersolids, and explore the rich excitation spectra of these objects.
