This is the final report on the Presidential Early Career Award for Science and Education PECASE. In this program, we aim at realizing model systems of strongly correlated electrons using ultracold fermionic atoms. The general theme is to study high-temperature superfluids, Fermi liquids metals and insulators in the presence of impurities whose influence on the fermions can be controlled. During the course of the PECASE, we have created and studied fermionic superfluids in two and three dimensions, realized topological states of fermions via spin-orbit coupling, built the first Fermi gas microscope among the Institute of Physics top ten breakthroughs of the year in physics 2015, observed charge and spin correlations in the Fermi-Hubbard model, created the first Fermi gas of chemically stable dipolar molecules and established coherent control of these molecules.
