Title: The Transition to a Giant Vortex Phase in a Fast Rotating Bose-Einstein

Condensate

Authors: M. Correggi, N. Rougerie, J. Yngvason

Categories: math-ph cond-mat.quant-gas math.MP

Comments: 52 pages, PDFLaTex. References added, minor corrections. To be

MSC-class: 35Q55, 47J30, 76M23

\\

We study the Gross-Pitaevskii (GP) energy functional for a fast rotating

Bose-Einstein condensate on the unit disc in two dimensions. Writing the

coupling parameter as $1/\eps^2$ we consider the asymptotic regime $\eps\to 0$

with the angular velocity $\Omega$ proportional to $(\eps^2|\log\eps|)^{-1}$.

We prove that if $\Omega=\Omega_0 (\eps^2|\log\eps|)^{-1}$ and

$\Omega_0>(3\pi)^{-1}$ then a minimizer of the GP energy functional has no

zeros in an annulus at the boundary of the disc that contains the bulk of the

mass. The vorticity resides in a complementary `hole' around the center where

the density is vanishingly small. Moreover, we prove a lower bound to the

ground state energy that matches, up to small errors, the upper bound obtained

from an optimal giant vortex trial function, and also that the winding number

of a GP minimizer around the disc is in accord with the phase of this trial

function.

Title: Complexity of waves in nonlinear disordered media

Authors: Claudio Conti and Luca Leuzzi

Categories: cond-mat.stat-mech physics.optics

Comments: 20 pages, 11 Figures

\\

The statistical properties of the phases of several modes nonlinearly coupled

in a random system are investigated by means of a Hamiltonian model with

disordered couplings. The regime in which the modes have a stationary

distribution of their energies and the phases are coupled is studied for

arbitrary degrees of randomness and energy. The complexity versus temperature

and strength of nonlinearity is calculated. A phase diagram is derived in terms

of the stored energy and amount of disorder. Implications in random lasing,

nonlinear wave propagation and finite temperature Bose-Einstein condensation

are discussed.

Title: The Bogoliubov inequality and the nature of Bose-Einstein condensates

for interacting atoms in spatial dimensions D </- 2

Authors: Moorad Alexanian

Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas

\\

We consider the restriction placed by the Bogoliubov inequality on the nature

of the Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) for interacting atoms in a spatial

dimension D </- 2 and in the presence of an external arbitrary potential, which

may be a confining "box", a periodic, or a disordered potential. The atom-atom

interaction gives rise to a (gauge invariance) symmetry-breaking term that

places further restrictions on BECs in the form of a consistency proviso. The

necessary condition for the existence of a BEC in D </- 2 in all cases is

macroscopic occupation of many single-particle momenta states with the origin a

limit point (or accumulation point) of condensates. It is shown that the nature

of BECs for noninteracting atoms in a disordered potential is precisely the

same as that of BECs for interacting atoms in the absence of an external

potential.

Title: Quantum process tomography with coherent states

Authors: Saleh Rahimi-Keshari, Artur Scherer, Ady Mann, Ali T. Rezakhani, A. I.

Lvovsky, and Barry C. Sanders

Categories: quant-ph

Comments: 18 pages, 2 figures

\\

We develop an enhanced technique for characterizing quantum optical processes

based on probing unknown quantum processes only with coherent states. Our

method substantially improves the original proposal [M. Lobino et al., Science

322, 563 (2008)], which uses a filtered Glauber-Sudarshan decomposition to

determine the effect of the process on an arbitrary state. We introduce a new

relation between the action of a general quantum process on coherent state

inputs and its action on an arbitrary quantum state. This relation eliminates

the need to invoke the Glauber-Sudarshan representation for states; hence it

dramatically simplifies the task of process identification and removes a

potential source of error. The new relation also enables straightforward

extensions of the method to multi-mode and non-trace-preserving processes. We

illustrate our formalism with several examples, in which we derive analytic

representations of several fundamental quantum optical processes in the Fock

basis. In particular, we introduce photon-number cutoff as a reasonable

physical resource limitation and address resource vs accuracy trade-off in

practical applications. We show that the accuracy of process estimation scales

inversely with the square root of photon-number cutoff.

Title: Analysis of a continuous-variable quadripartite cluster state from a

single optical parametric oscillator

Authors: S.L.W. Midgley, A.S. Bradley, O. Pfister and M.K. Olsen

Categories: quant-ph

Comments: 26 pages, 12 figures

\\

We examine the feasibility of generating continuous-variable multipartite

entanglement in an intra-cavity quadruply concurrent downconversion scheme that

has been proposed for the generation of cluster states by Menicucci \textit{et

al.} [Physical Review Letters \textbf{101}, 130501 (2008)]. By calculating

optimized versions of the van Loock-Furusawa correlations we demonstrate

genuine quadripartite entanglement and investigate the degree of entanglement

present. Above the oscillation threshold the basic cluster state geometry under

consideration suffers from phase diffusion. We alleviate this problem by

incorporating a small injected signal into our analysis. Finally, we

investigate squeezed joint operators. While the squeezed joint operators

approach zero in the undepleted regime, we find that this is not the case when

we consider the full interaction Hamiltonian and the presence of a cavity. In

fact, we find that the decay of these operators is minimal in a cavity, and

even depletion alone inhibits cluster state formation.

Title: Localization of correlated fermions in optical lattices with speckle

disorder

Authors: D. Semmler, J. Wernsdorfer, U. Bissbort, K. Byczuk, W. Hofstetter

Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas cond-mat.dis-nn

Comments: 12 pages, 16 figures

\\

Strongly correlated fermions in three- and two-dimensional optical lattices

with experimentally realistic speckle disorder are investigated. We extend and

apply the statistical dynamical mean-field theory, which treats local

correlations non-perturbatively, to incorporate on-site and hopping-type

randomness on equal footing. Localization due to disorder is detected via the

probability distribution function of the local density of states. We obtain a

complete paramagnetic ground state phase diagram for experimentally realistic

parameters and find a strong suppression of the correlation-induced metal

insulator transition due to disorder. Our results indicate that the

Anderson-Mott and the Mott insulator are not continuously connected due to the

specific character of speckle disorder. Furthermore, we discuss the effect of

finite temperature on the single-particle spectral function.

Title: Momentum-resolved study of an array of 1D strongly phase-fluctuating

Bose gases

Authors: Nicole Fabbri, David Cl\'ement, Leonardo Fallani, Chiara Fort and

Massimo Inguscio

Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas

Comments: 4 pages, 4 figures

\\

We investigate the coherence properties of an array of one-dimensional Bose

gases with short-scale phase fluctuations. The momentum distribution is

measured using Bragg spectroscopy and an effective coherence length of the

whole ensemble is defined. In addition, we propose and demonstrate that

time-of-flight absorption imaging can be used as a simple probe to directly

measure the coherence-length of 1D gases in the regime where phase-fluctuations

are strong. This method is suitable for future studies such as investigating

the effect of disorder on the phase coherence.

Title: Time-dependent self-trapping of Bose-Einstein Condensates in a

double-well potential

Authors: B. Cui, L. C. Wang, X. X. Yi

Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas quant-ph

Comments: 6 pages, 6 figures

\\

Based on the mean-field approximation and the phase space analysis, we

discuss the dynamics of Bose-Einstein condensates in a double-well potential.

By applying a periodic modulation to the coupling between the condensates, we

find the condensates can be trapped in the time-dependent eigenstates of the

effective Hamiltonian, we refer to this effect as time-dependent self-trapping

of BECs. A comparison of this self-trapping with the adiabatic evolution is

made, finding that the adiabatic evolution beyond the traditional(linear)

adiabatic condition can be achieved in BECs by manipulating the nonlinearity

and the ratio of the level bias to the coupling constant. The fixed points for

the system are calculated and discussed.

We present experimental studies on the generation and detection of pulsed,

relative-intensity squeezed light in a warm rubidium vapor. The noise

correlations between a pulsed probe beam and its conjugate -generated through

nearly-degenerate four-wave mixing in a double-lambda system- are studied via

time-resolved balanced detection. We observe -0.96 dB of time-resolved relative

intensity squeezing with 50 nanosecond pulses at 1 MHz repetition rate. (-1.34

dB corrected for loss).

Title: Field-induced phase transitions of repulsive spin-1 bosons in optical

lattices

Authors: K. Rodriguez, A. Arg\"uelles, A. K. Kolezhuk, L. Santos, T. Vekua

Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas

Comments: 4 pages, 2 figures

\\

We study the phase diagram of repulsively interacting spin-1 bosons in

optical lattices at unit filling, showing that an externally induced quadratic

Zeeman effect may lead to a rich physics characterized by various phases and

phase transitions. We find that the main properties of the system may be

described by an effective field model, which provides the precise location of

the phase boundaries for any dimension, being in excellent agreement with our

numerical calculations for one-dimensional systems. Our work provides a

quantitative guide for the experimental analysis of various types of

field-induced quantum phase transitions in spin-1 lattice bosons. These

transitions, which are precluded in spin-1/2 systems, may be realized using an

externally modified quadratic Zeeman coupling, similar to recent experiments

with spinor condensates in the continuum.

We study low temperature thermodynamic properties of a polarized Fermi gas

trapped in a quartic anharmonic potential. We use a semi classical

approximation and a low temperature series expansion method to derive

analytical expressions for various thermodynamic quantities. These quantities

include the total energy, particle number, and heat capacity for both positive

Title: Spontaneous Parity--Time Symmetry Breaking and Stability of Solitons in

Bose-Einstein Condensates

Authors: Zhenya Yan, Bo Xiong and Wu-Ming Liu

Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas

Comments: Submitted to Physical Review Letters on Sept. 13th 2010

\\

We report explicitly a novel family of exact PT-symmetric solitons and

further study their spontaneous PT symmetry breaking, stabilities and

collisions in Bose-Einstein condensates trapped in a PT-symmetric harmonic trap

and a Hermite-Gaussian gain/loss potential. We observe the significant effects

of mean-field interaction by modifying the threshold point of spontaneous PT

symmetry breaking in Bose-Einstein condensates. Our scenario provides a

promising approach to study PT-related universal behaviors in non-Hermitian

quantum system based on the manipulation of gain/loss potential in

Bose-Einstein condensates.

Title: On the Bose-Einstein Condensation of Rotons

Authors: Lev A. Melnikovsky

Categories: cond-mat.other cond-mat.quant-gas

Comments: 9 pages

\\

Bose-Einstein condensation of rotons in helium was considered long ago. It

was shown that the relative velocity of the normal motion in this state must be

equal to the Landau critical velocity. We argue that the condensation can be

attained at a smaller velocity if the temperature is low enough.

Title: Interference of parametrically driven one dimensional ultracold gases

Authors: Susanne Pielawa

Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas quant-ph

Comments: 7 pages, 5 figures

\\

We theoretically analyze interference patterns of parametrically driven one

dimensional ultracold atomic gases. By modulating the interaction strength

periodically in time, we propose to excite collective modes in a pair of

independent one dimensional gases at energies corresponding to the drive

frequency. The excited collective modes lead to spatial oscillations in the

correlations of the interference pattern, which can be analyzed to obtain the

sound velocity of the collective modes. We discuss both bosonic and fermionic

systems, and how such experiments could be used to probe spin charge

separation.

Title: The Wigner Distribution

Authors: R. F. O'Connell

Categories: quant-ph

Journal-ref: in "Compendium of Quantum Physics", edited by D.Greenberger, K.

Hentschel and F.Weinert (Springer 2009)

\\

In contrast to classical physics, the language of quantum mechanics involves

operators and wave functions (or, more generally, density operators). However,

in 1932, Wigner formulated quantum mechanics in terms of a distribution

function $W(q,p)$, the marginals of which yield the correct quantum

probabilities for $q$ and $p$ separately \cite{wigner}. Its usefulness stems

from the fact that it provides a re-expression of quantum mechanics in terms of

classical concepts so that quantum mechanical expectation values are now

expressed as averages over phase-space distribution functions. In other words,

statistical information is transferred from the density operator to a

quasi-classical (distribution) function.

Title: Oscillatory pairing of fermions in spin-split traps

Authors: Kuei Sun, Julia S. Meyer, Daniel E. Sheehy, Smitha Vishveshwara

Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas

Comments: 4 pages, 5 figures, RevTeX

\\

As a means of realizing oscillatory pairing between fermions, we study

superfluid pairing between two fermion "spin" species that are confined to

adjustable spin-dependent trapping potentials. Focusing on the one-dimensional

limit, we find that with increasing separation between the spin-dependent traps

the fermions exhibit distinct phases, including a fully paired phase, a

spin-imbalanced phase with oscillatory pairing, and an unpaired fully

spin-polarized phase. We obtain the phase diagram of fermions in such a

spin-split trap and discuss signatures of these phases in cold-atom

experiments.

completely characterize the eigenstates of this system, delineating new regimes

via both analytical high-order perturbation theory and numerical exact

diagonalization. Among these regimes are mixed Josephson- and Fock-like

behavior, crossings in both excited and ground states, and shadows of

macroscopic superposition states.

We report an experimental apparatus and technique which simultaneously traps

ions and cold atoms with spatial overlap. Such an apparatus is motivated by the

study of ion-atom processes at temperatures ranging from hot to ultra-cold.

This area is a largely unexplored domain of physics with cold trapped atoms. In

this article we discuss the general design considerations for combining these

two traps and present our experimental setup. The ion trap and atom traps are

characterized independently of each other. The simultaneous operation of both

is then described and experimental signatures of the effect of the ions and

cold-atoms on each other are presented. In conclusion the use of such an

instrument for several problems in physics and chemistry is briefly discussed.

Theoretical predictions for the dynamic structure factor of a harmonically

trapped Fermi superfluid near the BEC-BCS crossover are compared with recent

Bragg spectroscopy measurements at large transferred momenta. The calculations

are based on a random-phase (or time-dependent Hartree-Fock-Gorkov)

approximation generalized to the strongly interacting regime. Excellent

agreement with experimental spectra at low temperatures is obtained, with no

free parameters. Theoretical predictions for zero-temperature static structure

factor are also found to agree well with the experimental results and

independent theoretical calculations based on the exact Tan relations. The

temperature dependence of the structure factors at unitarity is predicted.

Title: Resonance States and Quantum Tunneling of Bose Einstein condensates in a

3D shallow trap

Authors: Sudip Kumar Haldar, Barnali Chakrabarti, Tapan Kumar Das

Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas

\\

A correlated quantum many-body method is applied to describe resonance states

of atomic Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC) in a realistic shallow trap (as

opposed to infinite traps commonly used). The realistic van der Waals

interaction is adopted as the interatomic interaction. We calculate

experimentally measurable decay rates of the lowest quasi-bound state in the

shallow trap. The most striking result is the observation of a new metastable

branch besides the usual one for attractive BEC in a pure harmonic trap. As the

particle number increases the new metastable branch appears, then gradually

disappears and finally usual metastable branch (associated with the attractive

BEC in a harmonic trap) appears, eventually leading to the collapse of the

condensate.

We report a technique that uses clouds of ultracold atoms as sensitive,

tunable, and non-invasive probes for microwave field imaging with micrometer

spatial resolution. The microwave magnetic field components drive Rabi

oscillations on atomic hyperfine transitions whose frequency can be tuned with

a static magnetic field. Readout is accomplished using state-selective

absorption imaging. Quantitative data extraction is simple and it is possible

to reconstruct the distribution of microwave magnetic field amplitudes and

phases. While we demonstrate 2d imaging, an extension to 3d imaging is

straightforward. We use the method to determine the microwave near-field

distribution around a coplanar waveguide integrated on an atom chip.
