About This PhD Project

Project Description

The aim of this project is to produce a topological superfluid using a gas of ultracold dysprosium atoms in a quantum gas microscope. Dysprosium, with its long-range and anisotropic dipolar interactions, may provide new pathways for creating unconventional superfluids, with non-trivial topology. This project will involve working on a new experiment, currently being developed as part of a national collaboration including several researchers from within FLEET. The quantum gas microscope will enable the investigation of both microscopic and macroscopic properties of topological atomic systems with the goal of testing new paradigms dissipationless transport in two-dimensional quantum matter.
