Exploring many-body physics with ultracold atoms

Abstract : By exploiting the versatility of ultracold atoms experiments, a variety of many-body phe- nomena can be studied. Ferromagnetism in a trapped ultracold gas of repulsively interacting fermions is considered within a local-density approximation and beyond, where energetic sig- natures indicate its onset. Transport of a Bose-Einstein condensate is explored experimentally in a tunable double-well potential, and a crossover from hydrodynamic to Josephson transport is observed as the barrier between condensates is raised. To add a degree of freedom for the manipulation of ultracold gases, two schemes for species-specific optical lattices are developed theoretically.
