This chapter describes some recent experiments on attractive Fermi gases and introduces experimental techniques used to probe these systems. It focuses on the problem of superfluidity in spin 1/2 fermionic systems, and shows how experiments with ultracold atoms gave invaluable insights to this problem.

Keywords: fermi gases; fermionic superfluidity; superfluids; ultracold atoms

Chapter.  7794 words.  Illustrated.
