**Dynamical Mean-Field Theory of Rydberg-dressed quantum gases in optical lattices** — •Andreas Geißler, Ivana Vidanovic, and Walter Hofstetter — Goethe Universität, Frankfurt, Hessen

As recent experiments have shown, it is now possible to investigate Rydberg-dressed quantum systems in optical lattices with a large number of Rydberg excitations. Here we investigate these strongly correlated systems for the bosonic case, by applying the real-space extension of bosonic dynamical mean-field theory (R-BDMFT) to the two-species lattice Hamiltonian in two and three dimensions. We find new exotic quantum phases of lattice commensurate order, giving rise to a devil's staircase in the filling as a function of the chemical potential. For increased hopping, a nonzero condensate fraction starts to emerge, which can coexist with the spatial density order, and thereby lead to a supersolid phase. A rich phase diagram is obtained in our simulations for experimentally realistic parameters.
