|Abstract: ||It has been suggested that some strongly correlated matter might be understood qualitatively in terms of liquid crystalline phases intervening between the Fermi gas and the Wigner crystal or Mott insulator. We propose a tunable realization of this soft quantum matter physics in an ultracold gas. It uses optical lattices and dipolar interactions to realize a particularly simple model. Our analysis reveals a rich phase diagram featuring a metanematic transition where the Fermi liquid changes dimensionality; a smectic phase (stripes) and a crystalline "checkerboard" phase.|
