Mixing it up with atomic mixtures
Prof. Dr. Fred Jendrzejewski (Kirchhoff-Institut für Physik, Universität Heidelberg)

Mixtures of ultracold atomic gases are an extremely versatile platform for the investigation of a wide variety of fundamental questions in physics. In this talk, we will first discuss their realization as done in our lab [1]. We will then present their possible application to two rather distinct problems, the quantum simulation of dynamical gauge fields [2] and the implementation of quantum heat engines.
