Universal clusters as building blocks of stable quantum matter

S. Endo, P. Naidon, A. M. García-García, Phys. Rev. A 93, 053611 (2016). 

Short abstract:

An exploratory study is presented that suggests that Efimov physics, a leading research theme in few-body quantum physics, can also induce stable many-body ground states whose building blocks are universal clusters. A range of parameters are identified in a mass-and-density imbalanced two-species fermionic mixture for which the ground state is a gas of Efimov-related universal trimers. An explicit calculation of the trimer-trimer interaction reveals that the trimer phase is an SU(3) Fermi liquid stable against recombination losses. Experimental observation of this phase is proposed in a fermionic 6Li-53Cr mixture.
