Measurements of low-energy excitations in Fermi gases published in Nature Physics

July 2017

In a recent series of experiments in the ultracold Fermi gas laboratory, CQOS researchers have used Bragg spectroscopy to map out the low-lying excitations in strongly interacting Fermi superfluids. The Bragg spectra are dominated by the Goldstone mode - a gapless collective excitation, or sound wave, that arises due to long-wavelength variations in the phase of the order parameter. In collaboration with theorists from Denmark and Finland, these results further our understandings of sound propagation and pairing in Fermi superfluids.
