Ultracold mixtures hold the promise of understanding new phases of matter and collisions at very low energies. We are setting up experiments with lithium and cesium mixtures on a chip i.e, 6Li - 7Li mixtures, heteronuclear LiCs or homonuclear 6Li2 molecules. By combining the capabilities of the atom chip with optical dipole trapping, it will be possible to trap these mixtures in low dimensions and tune their scattering lengths via Feshbach resonances. In this way, it will also be possible to realise experiments with additional magnetic potentials or investigate cold atoms interacting with a 2D electron gas. Here we present the current status of our experiment.
