(2014-05-14)
Article
Open Access
We study monolayers of noble gas atoms (Xe, Kr, Ar, and Ne) deposited on individual ultraclean suspended nanotubes. For this, we record the resonance frequency of the mechanical motion of the nanotube, since it provides a ...

(American Physical Society (APS), 2019-12-05)
Article
Open Access
A two-dimensional quantum system of dipoles, with a polarization angle not perpendicular to the plane, shows a transition from a gas to a stripe phase. We have studied the thermal properties of these two phases using the ...

(2017-10-13)
Article
Open Access
Ground-state properties of a fermionic Coulomb gas are calculated using the fixed-node diffusion Monte Carlo method. The validity of the composite boson description is tested for different densities. We extract the ...

(American Physical Society (APS), 2018-11-27)
Article
Open Access
We present two diffusion Monte Carlo (DMC) algorithms for systems of ultracold quantum gases featuring synthetic spin-orbit interactions. The first one is a spin-integrated DMC method which provides fixed-phase energy ...

(American Physical Society, 2019-11-08)
Article
Open Access
Dipolar quantum droplets are exotic quantum objects that are self-bound due to the subtle balance of attraction, repulsion, and quantum correlations. Here we present a systematic study of the critical atom number of these ...

Open Access
A quantum liquid in a heterogeneous mixture of 41K and 87Rb atoms is studied using the diffusion Monte Carlo method and density-functional theory. The perturbative Lee-Huang-Yang term for a heterogeneous mixture is verified ...

Article
Open Access
We study the superfluid properties of a system of fully polarized dipolar bosons moving in the XY plane. We focus on the general case where the polarization field forms an arbitrary angle a with respect to the Z axis, ...

Article
Open Access
We study the structural and mobility properties of edge dislocations in rare-gas crystals with the hexagonal close-packed (hcp) structure by using classical simulation techniques. Our results are discussed in the light of ...
