Mixing it up with atomic mixtures
Mixtures of ultracold atomic gases are an extremely versatile platform for the investigation of a wide variety of fundamental questions in ph ysics. In this talk, we will discuss first discuss their realization as done in our lab. We will then present their possible application to two rather distinct problems, the quantum simulation of dynamical gauge fields and the implementation of quantum heat engines.
