Spontaneous light-mediated magnetism in cold atoms
Communications Physics 1, 1–9 (2018)
Cold atom setups are now commonly employed in simulations of condensed matter phenomena. We present an approach to induce strong …
Optomechanical self-structuring in a cold atomic gas
Nature Photonics 8, 321–325 (2014)
Kinetic Theory for Transverse Optomechanical Instabilities
Physical Review Letters 112, 043901 (2014)
We investigate transverse symmetry-breaking instabilities emerging from the optomechanical coupling between light and the translational …
Dissipative solitons in the coupled dynamics of light and cold atoms
