Towards local probing of two-dimensional Fermi gases — •Wolf Weimer, Kai Morgener, Jan Henning Drewes, Niels Strohmaier, and Henning Moritz — Universität Hamburg, Institut für Laserphysik, Luruper Chaussee 149, 22761 Hamburg
Ultracold fermionic gases are an ideal model system for the study of quantum many-body phenomena. Of particular interest are two-dimensional strongly correlated systems which can exhibit superfluidity and Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless-type transitions.
Here we present our new experimental setup aimed at studying two-dimensional strongly interacting Fermi gases. Lithium atoms are cooled all-optically using an in vacuo bow-tie resonator for high transfer and cooling efficiency. The quantum degenerate gas will then be placed between two high resolution microscope objectives for local readout and control. The present status of the experiment will be discussed.
