We establish a dataset of over 1.6 x 10^4 experimental images of Bose–Einstein condensates containing solitonic excitations to enable machine learning (ML) for many-body physics research. About 33% of this dataset has manually assigned and carefully curated labels. The remainder …

Dark solitons in Bose–Einstein condensates: a dataset for many-body physics research Read more »

Here we revisit the topic of stationary and propagating solitonic excitations in self-repulsive three-dimensional (3D) Bose–Einstein condensates by quantitatively comparing theoretical analysis and associated numerical computations with our experimental results. Motivated by numerous experimental efforts, including our own herein, we …

Nontrivial topology in lattices is characterized by invariants—such as the Zak phase for one-dimensional (1D) lattices—derived from wave functions covering the Brillouin zone. We realize the 1D bipartite Rice-Mele (RM) lattice using ultracold 87Rb and focus on lattice configurations possessing …

Dynamically Induced Symmetry Breaking and Out-of-Equilibrium Topology in a 1D Quantum System Read more »

In ultracold-atom experiments, data often comes in the form of images which suffer information loss inherent in the techniques used to prepare and measure the system. This is particularly problematic when the processes of interest are complicated, such as interactions …

In the expanding universe, relativistic scalar fields are thought to be attenuated by “Hubble friction,” which results from the dilation of the underlying spacetime metric. By contrast, in a contracting universe this pseudofriction would lead to amplification. Here, we experimentally …

Accurate Determination of Hubble Attenuation and Amplification in Expanding and Contracting Cold-Atom Universes Read more »

High-resolution imaging of ultracold atoms typically requires custom high numerical aperture (NA) optics, as is the case for quantum gas microscopy. These high NA objectives involve many optical elements, each of which contributes to loss and light scattering, making them …
