Probing nonequilibrium dynamics in a trapped, inhomogeneous atomic quantum gas can be a challenging task because coexisting mass transport and spreading of quantum correlations often make the problem intractable. By removing density inhomogeneity in an atomic quantum gas and employing local control of chemical potential as well as interaction parameters, it is possible to perform quasi-particle control, initiate and probe collective quantum dynamics without or with a controlled mass flow. We report our experimental results toward quasi-particle control and nonequilibrium dynamics in a homogeneous two-dimensional quantum gas.
