Condensed Matter-AMO Journal Club: "Supersolidity in ultracold atoms"
|Event Contact:||Ali Abdullah Husain
Department of Physics
After many years of controversy over the existence of supersolid phases in condensed matter systems, two groups have recently claimed to realize this behavior using ultracold Bose-Einstein condensates with self-generated density modulations. I will discuss these claims, focusing on the paper of Léonard et al (arXiv:1609.09053).
