Commensurate and incommensurate 1D interacting quantum systems
We use dynamically varying microscopic light potentials in a quantum-gas microscope to study commensurate and incommensurate 1D systems of interacting bosonic atoms in an optical lattice Nat Communications 15, 474 (2024).
Instabilities of driven matter waves with interactions
We studied the stability of a Bosonic quantum gas in a 1D optical lattice with periodic driving, Phys. Rev. Research 5, 033024 (2023).
