Abstract:

What happens when the strength of interactions between atoms is turned up to infinity? What about when one mixes two types of superfluids?  In this talk, I will explain how ultracold atomic gases are used to create and probe these types of systems in the young and exciting field known as quantum simulation.  I will discuss our recent success producing and studying extreme quantum states in ultracold lithium gases including a "unitary Bose gas," in which the interactions between atoms have infinite strength, and a mixture of mutually interacting Bose and Fermi superfluids.  Finally, I will briefly look at how adding individual atomic ions to these systems could provide a microscopic probe of these extreme quantum gases.
