Abstract

We study one-dimensional fermionic and bosonic gases with repulsive power-law interactions 1/|x|^β, with β > 1, in the framework of Tomonaga-Luttinger liquid (TLL) theory.We obtain an accurate analytical expression linking the TLL parameter to the microscopic Hamiltonian, for arbitrary and strength of the interactions. In the presence of a small periodic potential, power-law interactions make the TLL unstable towards the formation of a cascade of lattice solids with fractional filling, a "Luttinger staircase." Several of these quantum phases and phase transitions are realized with ground state polar molecules and weakly bound magnetic Feshbach molecules.
