Fractional quantum Hall effect with cold atoms

In recent years we have studied, in close collaboration with ICFO, a number of issues related to the possibility of observing fractional quantum Hall states with ultracold atomic clouds. Our main focus is on small systems, which can be studied through exact diagonalization.


The project has been to a large extend driven by the force of Tobias Grass. Who did his PhD on these topics (2010-2013). If you want to know more I recomend you read his PhD thesis.
