Understanding of long-range interactions. For example, the exchange of massive bosons leads to the Yukawa potential. Phonon exchange between electrons gives rise to Cooper pairing in superconductors. When a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) of Cs is embedded in a degenerate Fermi gas of Li, we show that interspecies interactions can give rise to an effective trapping potential, damping, and attractive boson-boson interactions mediated by fermions. The latter, related to the Ruderman-Kittel-Kasuya-Yosida (RKKY) mechanism, results from a coherent three-body scattering process. Such mediated interactions are expected to form novel magnetic phases and supersolids. We show that for suitable conditions, the mediated interactions can convert a stable BEC into a train of "Bose-Fermi solitons".
