Site-resolved imaging of a bosonic Mott insulator using ytterbium atoms.
We demonstrate site-resolved imaging of a strongly correlated quantum system without relying on laser-cooling techniques during fluorescence imaging. We observed the formation of Mott shells in the insulating regime and realized thermometry on the atomic cloud. This work proves the feasibility of the noncooled approach and opens the door to extending the detection technology to new atomic species.
