Degenerate Fermi Gases of Ytterbium

First observation: DFG!

Group: Takahashi

Authors and contributors: Takeshi Fukuhara, Yosuke Takasu, Mitsutaka Kumakura, and Yoshiro Takahashi

From Phys. Rev. Lett. submission:

"Evaporative cooling was performed to cool fermionic 173Yb atoms in a crossed optical dipole trap. The large elastic collision rate leads to efficient evaporation and we have successfully cooled the atoms to 0.37±0.06 of the Fermi temperature, that is to say, to a quantum degenerate regime. In this regime, a plunge of evaporation efficiency was observed as a result of Fermi degeneracy."
