Towards an erbium BEC in an optical box potential


In this talk we will report on our progress towards producing a Bose-Einstein condensate of dipolar erbium atoms in an optical box potential. Our cooling protocol will closely follow methods applied in similar experiments; a narrow line magneto-optical trap will be loaded using a Zeeman slowed atomic beam from an erbium oven. The atoms will then be optically trapped, and undergo optical transport to a separate glass cell for enhanced optical access. The atoms will then be confined to a quasi-2D box potential. The ability to tune the nature and the strength of the interactions, as well as the confining geometry, will allow us to probe many-body phenomena such as the appearance of a roton minimum in a quasi-2D dipolar gas and supersolidity. Furthermore, we also plan to investigate non-equilibrium many-body physics in quenched and driven quantum systems.
