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 …

Dynamical instability of 3d stationary and traveling planar dark solitons Read more »

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 …

Combining machine learning with physics: A framework for tracking and sorting multiple dark solitons Read more »

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 »

The implementation of a combination of continuous weak measurement and classical feedback provides a powerful tool for controlling the evolution of quantum systems. In this paper, we investigate the potential of this approach from three perspectives. First, we consider a …

Feedback-stabilized dynamical steady states in the Bose-Hubbard model Read more »

Most data in cold-atom experiments comes from images, the analysis of which is limited by our preconceptions of the patterns that could be present in the data. We focus on the well-defined case of detecting dark solitons—appearing as local density …
