With the evergrowing interest in quantum cooperativity, comes an ongoing
effort to study light-induced correlations in atomic media. In
these typically extreme dense regimes, with atomic distances below
the scattering lights wavelength, a direct matter-matter coupling is introduced
by electric and magnetic interactions. We intend to study
light-matter interactions in dense dipolar media with large magnetic
moments to explore the impact of magnetic dipole-dipole interactions
onto the cooperative response of the sample. With the largest groundstate
magnetic moment in the periodic table (10 Bohr-magneton), Dysprosium
is the perfect choice for these experiments.
This poster reports on our recent work to generate dense ultracold
dysprosium clouds utilizing a microscopic optical dipole trap. Further,
we give a perspective on future adaptations of this technique with a
self-built science cell, that serves as a highly accessible platform to
manipulate the atomic cloud. The small dimensions of the cell allow
for extremely tight optical dipole trapping and precise magnetic field
control at the position of the atoms.
