Orbital superfluidity in a 2D optical lattice

Institution: 
University of Hamburg

I discuss our recent observations of orbital superfluidity in higher bands of a 2D bipartite optical lattice. Via analysis of the momentum spectra we observe truly complex-valued order parameters, which break time-reversal symmetry.
