Spin Transport in a Mott Insulator of Ultracold Fermions

Superconductivity is a phenomenon in materials whereby electron pairs can flow freely without resistance. As a consequence, no energy is lost while electrical current passes through the superconductor. The benefits, therefore, of superconducting materials which operate at room temperature are countless, and range from revolutionizing the electrical power transmission industry, to providing sweeping improvements in...

Since 2016, members of the CUA have spoken to classes at Christo Rey Boston High School, as well as tutored students. Tutoring is primarily in science subjects, but also covers organizational skills. The Christo Rey student body is comprised of nearly all students of color, all from families of limited economic means, and 60% of...

Pairing of fermions lends stability and robustness to matter, from nuclei and atoms to superconductors and neutron stars. In this talk, we demonstrate the use of fermion pairs in an optical lattice for robust encoding and manipulation of quantum information. With each fermion pair forming a spin singlet, the qubit is realized as a set...
