Australian Quantum Gas Microscope (ARC LIEF grant administered by Swinburne University of Technology) (2018–2019)
This project aims to create a quantum gas microscope for ultracold dysprosium atoms, realising a versatile system for quantum emulation, tests of fundamental, atom interferometry and precision measurement. It will underpin research on dissipationless transport in materials in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Future Low-Energy Electronics Technologies. Quantum gas microscopy is a frontier area allowing atom-by-atom synthesis and probing of tailored quantum materials such as topological insulators. Using the lanthanide element dysprosium, which is highly magnetic and possesses both bosonic and fermionic isotopes, this facility will serve the needs of multiple research groups with diverse scientific interests.
