Ultracold atoms in superlattices as quantum simulators for a spin
ordering model and phenomena

Godfrey E. Akpojotor
Cold atoms in optical lattices is the application of two formerly distinct aspects of physics: quantum gases from atomic physics and laser theory from quantum optics. Its use to simulate quantum phenomena and models in condensed matter physics is a growing field. The major goal is to use cold fermonic atoms in these superlattices for the simulations. We present here a theoretical proposal for simulating a spin ordering model using fermions. We demonstrate superexchange interaction in the double well and resonating valence bond (RVB) states in kagome lattice which is important for understanding the CuO2 plane of the superconducting cuprates and other magnetic frustrated materials.
