Strongly interacting two-dimensional fermionic atomic gases

Associate Professor Daniel Sheehy
Department of Physics and Astronomy, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, USA

Trapped fermionic atomic gases exhibit superfluid states, akin to
superconductivity in a metal, due to the pairing of two species of
atomic fermion.   Recent atomic physics experiments have focused on
the two-dimensional regime, in which a strong trapping potential
confines the atomic fermions to a "pancake"-shaped geometry.  I will
discuss two recent theoretical projects from my group on 2D gases.
The first addresses the possibility of an FFLO phase of 2D Fermi gases
under an imposed population imbalance in the two species of fermion,
and the second addresses interaction effects on the density profiles
of 2D Fermi gases in the normal (nonsuperfluid phase) above the
transition temperature.
