Summary

Exceptional advances in the field of ultracold quantum gases have opened new frontiers in the understanding of modern quantum physics. The proposed project targets to use of a highly magnetic atomic species, erbium (Er), to study strongly dipolar effects in few- and many-body physics. The choice of erbium has the advantage of combining the richness of the dipole-dipole interaction (DDI) together with the huge knowhow available with atomic systems, harnessing moreover the particular strengths of the lanthanide (Ln) species for dipolar and quantum physics.
