Abstract : The project period features multiple advances at different frontiers of ultracold atom science. Our approach has been a joint experimental and theoretical effort. Experimentally, new technologies for optical lattices were implemented, including a two-layer quantum microscope, a flexible hexagonal lattice where the geometry of the lattice can be changed by polarization control, and a new fluorescence detection scheme for potassium using blue light.
