Abstract

Author(s): Michael E. Beverland, Gorjan Alagic, Michael J. Martin, Andrew P. Koller, Ana M. Rey, and Alexey V. GorshkovWe show that n thermal fermionic alkaline-earth-metal atoms in a flat-bottom trap allow one to robustly implement a spin model displaying two symmetries: the S_{n} symmetry that permutes atoms occupying different vibrational levels of the trap and the SU(N) symmetry associated with N nuclear spin st…[Phys.
