Ultracold atom quantum simulations: Exploring low temperature Fermi-Hubbard phases

Ultracold-atom model-systems offer a unique way to investigate a wide range of many-body quantum physics in uncharted regimes. Quantum gas microscopy enables us to "zoom in" on a single particle level. We can explore many-body quantum physics in regimes that are not computationally accessible. In my talk I will present the first observation of an anti-ferromagnetic phase of Fermions in an optical lattice, and the observation of string pattern in the doped Fermi-Hubbard model.

A few novel nanophotonics phenomena

Via nanophotonics, one can tailor the laws of physics (as far as light is concerned) almost at will. This way, a variety of novel physical phenomena can be enabled and observed. Some recent examples in light-matter interaction as well as topology and non-Hermitian physics will be presented.
