Abstract

We consider the photoassociation of fermions trapped in a two-dimensional optical lattice into bosonic molecules, in the limit that intersite tunnelling is negligible. For the case of two fermions in different hyperfine states this process can be mapped into a generalized version of the Jaynes-Cummings Hamiltonian from quantum optics. We make use of this equivalence to show how to build a micromaser for the molecular field at each lattice site.
