Title: Scanning quantum gas atom chip microscopy of strongly correlated and topologically nontrivial materials

Abstract

The SQCRAMscope, Scanning Quantum Cryogenic Atom Microscope, is a novel scanning probe microscope we developed during this DOE fund period. It is now capable of imaging transport in cryogenically cooled solid-state samples, as we have recently demonstrated with iron-based pnictide superconductors. As such, it opens a new frontier in the quantum-based metrology of materials and is the first example of the direct marriage of ultracold AMO physics with condensed matter physics. We predict the SQCRAMscope will become an important element in the toolbox for exploring strongly correlated and topologically nontrivial materials.
