Solid-state quantum systems provide an alternative setting to ultracold gases for realizing strongly interacting systems in reduced dimensions. Particularly, transition-metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) attract growing interest due to their unique optoelectronic properties.
Exciton physics in these atomically thin nanomaterials present new possibilities for experimental study of few- and many-particle phenomena. In this talk, I will give two examples showcasing TMDs as a platform to investigate strongly interacting Bose gases and Bose-Fermi mixtures in reduced dimensions.
