This seminar will present the latest results from two of our experiments. We will begin by describing the long-lived spin-orbit-coupled dipolar Fermi gas recently produced using our dysprosium apparatus. The T/T_F = 0.4 gas has a lifetime as long as 0.4 s under Raman dressing at densities exceeding 10^13 cm^-3. The lifetime is limited not by spontaneous emission but by dipolar relaxation. In the second portion of the talk, we present our observation of a "supermode-polariton condensate" using an optically driven rubidium Bose-Einstein condensate inside a multimode cavity QED system. Future employment of spinful atoms may provide Hopfield associative memories and avenues to study the order of short-range spin glasses.
