Experiments with Ultracold Atoms in Optical Potentials: Searching for Disorder Induced Effects
We will present recent experiments performed in Florence with the aim to study disorder induced effects using ultracold atoms in optical potentials. Our approach to the realization of a disordered potential is the implementation of a bichromatic quasi-periodic optical lattice. In particular, we will discuss the possibility to observe a Bose Glass phase with strongly interacting bosons and the perspectives to observe Anderson localization with non-interacting or weakly interacting bosons.
