**Making, probing and understanding ultracold Fermi gases**

by Wolfgang Ketterle, Martin W. Zwierlein

**Publisher**: arXiv 2008**Number of pages**: 206

**Description**:

This paper summarizes the experimental frontier of ultra cold fermionic gases. It is based on three lectures which one of the authors gave at the Varenna summer school describing the experimental techniques used to study ultracold fermionic gases, and some of the results obtained so far.
