Title: A fully quantal molecular description for the spectra of bosons and

   Through the introduction of a class of appropriate translationally invariant
trial wave functions, we show that the strong correlations in the lowest Landau
level (LLL) reflect in finite systems the emergence of intrinsic point-group
symmetries associated with rotations and vibrations of molecules formed through
particle localization. This quantal molecular description is universal, being
valid for both bosons and fermions, for both the yrast and excited states of
the LLL spectra, and for both low and high angular momenta. "Quantum-fluid"
physical pictures associated with Jastrow-type trial functions are shown to be
reducible to the molecular description introduced in this paper.

Title: Fragmented Many-Body states of definite angular momentum and stability
   of attractive 3D Condensates
Authors: Marios C. Tsatsos, Alexej I. Streltsov, Ofir E. Alon and Lorenz S.

DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevA.82.033613
   A three dimensional attractive Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC) is expected to
collapse, when the number of the particles $N$ in the ground state or the
interaction strength $\lambda_0$ exceeds a critical value. We study systems of
different particle numbers and interaction strength and find that even if the
overall ground state is collapsed there is a plethora of fragmented excited
states that are still in the metastable region. Utilizing the
\emph{configuration interaction} expansion we determine the spectrum of the
ground (`yrast') and excited many-body states with definite total angular
momentum quantum numbers $0\leqslant L\leqslant N$ and $-L\leqslant
M_L\leqslant L$, and we find and examine states that survive the collapse. This
opens up the possibility of realizing a metastable system with overcritical
numbers of bosons in a ground state with angular momentum $L\neq0$. The
multi-orbital mean-field theory predictions about the existence of fragmented
metastable states with overcritical numbers of bosons are verified and
elucidated at the many-body level. The descriptions of the total angular
momentum within the mean-field and the many-body approaches are compared.

   Event horizons of astrophysical black holes and gravitational analogues have
been predicted to excite the quantum vacuum and give rise to the emission of
quanta, known as Hawking radiation. We experimentally create such a
gravitational analogue using ultrashort laser pulse filaments and our
measurements demonstrate a spontaneous emission of photons that confirms
theoretical predictions.

Title: Thermodynamics of the Antiferromagnetic Heisenberg Model on the
   Checkerboard Lattice
Authors: Ehsan Khatami and Marcos Rigol
Categories: cond-mat.str-el
Comments: 10 pages, 13 figures
   Employing numerical linked-cluster expansions (NLCEs) along with exact
diagonalizations of finite clusters with periodic boundary condition, we study
the energy, specific heat, entropy, and various susceptibilities of the
antiferromagnetic Heisenberg model on the checkerboard lattice. NLCEs, combined
with extrapolation techniques, allow us to access temperatures much lower than
those accessible to exact diagonalization and other series expansions. We find
that the high-temperature peak in specific heat decreases as the frustration
increases, consistent with the large amount of unquenched entropy in the region
around maximum classical frustration, where the nearest-neighbor and
next-nearest neighbor exchange interactions (J and J', respectively) have the
same strength, and with the formation of a second peak at lower temperatures.
The staggered susceptibility shows a change of character when J' increases
beyond 0.75J, implying the disappearance of the long-range antiferromagnetic
order at zero temperature. For J'=4J, in the limit of weakly-coupled crossed
chains, we find large susceptibilities for stripe and Neel order with
Q=(pi/2,pi/2) at low temperatures with antiferromagnetic correlations along the
chains. Other magnetic and bond orderings, such as a plaquette valence-bond
solid and a crossed-dimer order suggested by previous studies, have also been

Title: Far-ultraviolet signatures of the 3He(n,tp) reaction in noble gas
Authors: Patrick P. Hughes, Michael A. Coplan, Alan K. Thompson, Robert E. Vest
   and Charles W. Clark
Categories: nucl-ex cond-mat.quant-gas physics.atom-ph
   Previous work showed that the 3He(n,tp) reaction in a cell of 3He at
atmospheric pressure generated tens of far-ultraviolet photons per reacted
neutron. Here we report amplification of that signal by factors of 1000 and
more when noble gases are added to the cell. Calibrated filter-detector
measurements show that this large signal is due to noble-gas excimer emissions,
and that the nuclear reaction energy is converted to far-ultraviolet radiation
with efficiencies of up to 30%. The results have been placed on an absolute
scale through calibrations at the NIST SURF III synchrotron. They suggest
possibilities for high-efficiency neutron detectors as an alternative to
existing proportional counters.

Title: Spin-charge separation in one-dimensional fermion systems beyond the
   Luttinger liquid theory
Authors: Thomas L. Schmidt and Adilet Imambekov and Leonid I. Glazman
Categories: cond-mat.str-el
Comments: 25 pages, 11 figures
   We develop a nonperturbative zero-temperature theory for the dynamic response
functions of interacting one-dimensional spin-1/2 fermions. In contrast to the
conventional Luttinger liquid theory, we take into account the nonlinearity of
the fermion dispersion exactly. We calculate the power-law singularities of the
spectral function and the charge and spin density structure factors for
arbitrary momenta and interaction strengths. The exponents characterizing the
singularities are functions of momenta and differ significantly from the
predictions of the linear Luttinger liquid theory. We generalize the notion of
the spin-charge separation to the nonlinear spectrum. This generalization leads
to phenomenological relations between threshold exponents and the threshold

Title: Crystalline phase for one-dimensional ultra-cold atomic bosons
Authors: Hans Peter B\"uchler
Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas quant-ph
Comments: 4 pages, 2 figures
   We study cold atomic gases with a contact interaction and confined into
one-dimension. Crossing the confinement induced resonance the correlation
between the bosons increases, and introduces an effective range for the
interaction potential. Using the mapping onto the sine-Gordon model and a
Hubbard model in the strongly interacting regime allows us to derive the phase
diagram in the presence of an optical lattice. We demonstrate the appearance of
a phase transition from a Luttinger liquid with algebraic correlations into a
crystalline phase with a particle on every second lattice site.

Title: Quantum criticality in inter-band superconductors
Authors: Aline Ramires and Mucio A. Continentino
Categories: cond-mat.str-el hep-th
Comments: 5 pages, 1 figure
   In fermionic systems with different types of quasi-particles, attractive
interactions can give rise to exotic superconducting states, as pair density
wave (PDW) superconductivity and breached pairing. In the last years the search
for these new types of ground states in cold atom and in metallic systems has
been intense. In the case of metals the different quasi-particles may be the up
and down spin bands in an external magnetic field or bands arising from
distinct atomic orbitals that coexist at a common Fermi surface. These systems
present a complex phase diagram as a function of the difference between the
Fermi wave-vectors of the different bands. This can be controlled by external
means, varying the density in the two-component cold atom system or, in a
metal, by applying an external magnetic field or pressure. Here we study the
zero temperature instability of the normal system as the Fermi wave-vectors
mismatch of the quasi-particles (bands) is reduced and find a second order
quantum phase transition to a PDW superconducting state. From the nature of the
quantum critical fluctuations close to the superconducting quantum critical
point (SQCP), we obtain its dynamic critical exponent. It turns out to be $z=2$
and this allows to fully characterize the SQCP for dimensions $d \ge 2$.

Title: Interaction dependent temperature effects in Bose-Fermi mixtures in
   optical lattices
Authors: M. Cramer
Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas cond-mat.stat-mech
Comments: 6 pages, 3 figures
   We present a quantitative finite temperature analysis of a recent experiment
with Bose-Fermi mixtures in optical lattices, in which the dependence of the
coherence of bosons on the inter-species interaction was analyzed. Our theory
reproduces the characteristics of this dependence and suggests that intrinsic
temperature effects play an important role in these systems. Namely, under the
assumption that the ramping up of the optical lattice is an isentropic process,
adiabatic temperature changes of the mixture occur that depend on the
interaction between bosons and fermions. Matching the entropy of two
regimes---no lattice on the one hand and deep lattices on the other---allows us
to compute the temperature in the lattice and the visibility of the
quasi-momentum distribution of the bosonic atoms, which we compare to the
experiment. We briefly comment on the remaining discrepancy between theory and
experiment, speculating that it may in part be attributed to the dependence of
the Bose-Fermi scattering length on the confinement of the atoms.

Title: Gradient corrections to the local density approximation for trapped
   superfluid Fermi gases
Authors: Andr\'as Csord\'as. Orsolya Alm\'asy and P\'eter Sz\'epfalusy
Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas
Comments: 13 pages, 8 figures
   Two species superfluid Fermi gas is investigated on the BCS side up to the
Feshbach resonance. Using the Greens's function technique gradient corrections
are calculated to the generalized Thomas-Fermi theory including Cooper pairing.
Their relative magnitude is found to be measured by the small parameter
$(d/R_{TF})^4$, where $d$ is the oscillator length of the trap potential and
$R_{TF}$ is the radial extension of the density $n$ in the Thomas-Fermi
approximation. In particular at the Feshbach resonance the universal %constant
$A_{TF}$ has the %correction in the center $A=A_{TF}+A_2(d/R_{TF})^4+\...$
corrections to the local density approximation are calculated and a universal
prefactor $\kappa_W=7/27$ is derived for the von Weizs\"acker type correction
$\kappa_W(\hbar^2/2m)(\nabla^2 n^{1/2}/n^{1/2})$.

Title: Full counting statistics of the interference contrast from independent
   Bose-Einstein condensates
Authors: Steffen Patrick Rath and Wilhelm Zwerger
Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas
Comments: 15 pages, 7 figures
   We show that the visibility in interference experiments with Bose-Einstein
condensates is directly related to the condensate fraction. The probability
distribution of the contrast over many runs of an interference experiment thus
gives the full counting statistics of the condensed atom number. For
two-dimensional Bose gases, we discuss the universal behavior of the
probability distribution in the superfluid regime and provide analytical
expressions for the distributions for both homogeneous and harmonically trapped
samples. They are non-Gaussian and unimodal with a variance that is directly
related to the superfluid density. In general, the visibility is a
self-averaging observable only in the presence of long range phase coherence.
Close to the transition temperature, the visibility distribution reflects the
universal order parameter distribution in the vicinity of the critical point.

Title: Exotic magnetic orders for high spin ultracold fermions
Authors: E. Szirmai and M. Lewenstein
Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas quant-ph
Comments: 6 pages
   We study Hubbard models for ultracold bosonic or fermionic atoms loaded into
an optical lattice. The atoms carry a high-spin $F>1/2$, and interact on site
via strong repulsive Van der Waals forces. Making convenient rearrangements of
the interaction terms, and exploiting their symmetry properties, we derive low
energy effective models with nearest-neighbor interactions, and their
properties. We apply our method to $F=3/2$ fermions on two-dimensional square
lattice at quarter filling, and investigate mean-field equations for repulsive
singlet $g_0$ and quintet $g_2$ couplings. We find that the plaquette state
appearing in the highly symmetric $SU(4)$ case ($g_0=g_2$) does not require
fine tuning, and is stable in an extended region of the phase diagram. This
phase competes with an $SU(2)$ flux state, that is always suppressed for
repulsive interactions in absence of external magnetic field. The $SU(2)$ flux
state has, however, lower energy than the plaquette phase, and stabilizes in
the presence of a weak applied magnetic field. Some preliminary results for
$F=5/2$ fermions are also presented.

   We review current status of the study of parity and time invariance phenomena

research: (i) parity non-conservation in a chain of isotopes, (ii) search for
nuclear anapole moments, and (iii) search for permanent electric dipole moments
(EDM) of atoms and molecules which are caused by either, electron EDM or
nuclear $T,P$-odd moments such as nuclear EDM and nuclear Schiff moment.

Title: Reflection of a Particle from a Quantum Measurement
Authors: Jonathan B. Mackrory, Kurt Jacobs, Daniel A. Steck
Categories: quant-ph
Comments: 28 pages, 7 figures, uses IOP style files
   We present a generalization of continuous position measurements that accounts
for a spatially inhomogeneous measurement strength. This describes many real
measurement scenarios, in which the rate at which information is extracted
about position has itself a spatial profile, and includes measurements that
detect if a particle has crossed from one region into another. We show that
such measurements can be described, in their averaged behavior, as
stochastically fluctuating potentials of vanishing time average. Reasonable
constraints restrict the form of the measurement to have degenerate outcomes,
which tend to drive the system to spatial superposition states. We present the
results of quantum-trajectory simulations for measurements with a step-function
profile (a "which-way" measurement) and a Gaussian profile. We find that the
particle can coherently reflect from the measurement region in both cases,
despite the stochastic nature of the measurement back-action. In addition, we
explore the connection to the quantum Zeno effect, where we find that the
reflection probability tends to unity as the measurement strength increases.
Finally, we discuss two physical realizations of a spatially varying position
measurement using atoms.

reasonable accuracy. We stand by it and use this reply to sharpen the
conditions under which "sharp" features in compressibility reflect the effects
of critical fluctuations.

   Nano-mechanical resonators have a large potential as sensors of very small

limited only by the laws of quantum mechanics, and identify the quantum states

states. We demonstrate that the ground state of strongly attractive SU($N$)
Fermi gases can be effectively described by a super Tonks-Girardeau gas-like
state composed of bosonic cluster states with strongly attractive
cluster-cluster interaction for even $N$, and a Fermi duality of a super
Tonks-Girardeau gas-like state composed of fermionic cluster states with weakly
interacting cluster-cluster p-wave interaction for odd $N$.

Title: Hybrid optical pumping of optically dense alkali-metal vapor without
   quenching gas
Authors: M. V. Romalis
Categories: physics.atom-ph
Comments: 4 pages
   Optical pumping of an optically thick atomic vapor typically requires a
quenching buffer gas, such as N$_{2}$, to prevent radiation trapping of
unpolarized photons which would depolarize the atoms. We show that optical
pumping of a trace contamination of Rb present in K metal results in a 4.5
times higher polarization of K than direct optical pumping of K in the absence
of N$_{2}$. Such spin-exchange polarization transfer from optically-thin
species is useful in a variety of areas, including spin-polarized nuclear
scattering targets and electron beams, quantum-non-demolition spin
measurements, and ultra-sensitive magnetometry.

Title: Parametric excitation of a 1D gas in integrable and non-integrable cases
Authors: M. Colom\'e-Tatch\'e and D.S. Petrov
Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas
Comments: 4 pages, 2 figures
   We study the response of a highly excited 1D gas with point-like interactions
to a periodic modulation of the coupling constant. We calculate the
corresponding dynamic structure factors and show that their low-frequency
behavior differs dramatically for integrable and non-integrable models.
Non-integrable systems are sensitive to excitations with frequencies as low as
the mean level spacing, whereas much higher frequencies are required to excite
an integrable system. This effect can be used as a probe of integrability for
mesoscopic 1D systems and can be observed experimentally by measuring the
heating rate of a parametrically excited gas.

   We produce YbF molecules with a density of 10^18 m^-3 using laser ablation
inside a cryogenically-cooled cell filled with a helium buffer gas. Using
absorption imaging and absorption spectroscopy we study the formation,
diffusion, thermalization and optical pumping of the molecules. The absorption
images show an initial rapid expansion of molecules away from the ablation
target followed by a much slower diffusion to the cell walls. We study how the
time constant for diffusion depends on the helium density and temperature, and
obtain values for the YbF-He diffusion cross-section at two different
temperatures. We measure the translational and rotational temperatures of the
molecules as a function of time since formation, obtain the characteristic time
constant for the molecules to thermalize with the cell walls, and elucidate the
process responsible for limiting this thermalization rate. Finally, we make a
detailed study of how the absorption of the probe laser saturates as its
intensity increases, showing that the saturation intensity is proportional to
the helium density. We use this to estimate collision rates and the density of
molecules in the cell.

Comments: 4 pages
   We perform large-scale Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) simulations for strongly
interacting bosons in a 2D optical lattice trap, and confirm an excellent
agreement with the benchmarking in-situ density measurements by the Chicago
group [1]. We further present a general finite temperature phase diagram both
for the uniform and the trapped systems, and demonstrate how the universal
scaling properties near the superfluid(SF)-to-Mott insulator(MI) transition can
be observed by analysing the in-situ density profile. The characteristic
temperature to find such quantum criticality is estimated to be of the order of
the single-particle bandwidth, which should be achievable in the present or
near future experiments. Finally, we examine the validity regime of the local
fluctuation-dissipation theorem (FDT), which can be a used as a thermometry in
the strongly interacting regime.

   In a recent work [H. Flayac, I.A. Shelykh, D.D. Solnyshkov and G. Malpuech,
Phys. Rev. B 81, 045318 (2010)], we have analyzed the effect of the TE-TM
splitting on the stability of the exciton-polariton vortex states. We
considered classical vortex solutions having cylindrical symmetry and we found
that the so-called half-vortex states [Yu. G. Rubo, Phys. Rev. Lett. 99, 106401
(2007)] are not solutions of the stationary Gross-Pitaevskii equation. In their
Comment [M. Toledo Solano, Yu.G. Rubo, Phys. Rev. B 82, 127301 (2010)], M.
Toledo Solano and Yuri G. Rubo claim that this conclusion is misleading and
pretend to demonstrate the existence of static half-vortices in an
exciton-polariton condensate in the presence of TE-TM splitting. In this reply
we explain why this assertion is not demonstrated satisfactorily.

Title: Exact Yrast Spectra of Cold Atoms on a Ring
Authors: Eriko Kaminishi, Rina Kanamoto, Jun Sato, Tetsuo Deguchi
Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas math-ph math.MP quant-ph
Comments: 5 pages, 3 figures
   We propose a methodology to construct excited states with a fixed angular
momentum, namely, "yrast excited states" of finite-size one-dimensional bosonic
systems with periodic boundary conditions. The excitation energies such as the
first yrast excited energy are calculated through the system-size asymptotic
expansion and expressed analytically by dressed energy.
   Interestingly, they are grouped into sets of almost degenerate energy levels.
The low-lying excitation spectrum near the yrast state is consistent with the $
U(1)$ conformal field theories if the total angular momentum is given by an
integral multiple of particle number; i.e., if the system is supercurrent.

Title: Bogoliubov Theory of Disordered Bose-Einstein Condensates
Authors: Christopher Gaul and Cord A. M\"uller
Categories: cond-mat.dis-nn cond-mat.quant-gas
Comments: 4 pages
   A theory is presented that describes the excitations of interacting
Bose-Einstein condensates in random potentials with arbitrary spatial
correlation. By a saddle-point expansion around the deformed mean-field
solution, an effective inhomogeneous Bogoliubov Hamiltonian is derived,
achieving an analytical formulation in the case of weak disorder. From this,
disorder corrections to the sound velocity and the zero-temperature condensate
depletion are calculated in all dimensions.

Title: Dynamical instability and loss of p-band bosons in optical lattices
Authors: J.-P. Martikainen
Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas
Comments: 6 pages, 6 figures
Report-no: NORDITA-2010-78
   We study how the bosonic atoms on the excited p-band of an optical lattice
are coupled to the lowest s-band and the 2nd excited d-band. We find that in
some parameter regimes the atom-atom interactions can cause a dynamical
instability of the p-band atoms towards decay to the s- and d-bands.
Furthermore, even when dynamical instability is not expected s- and d-bands can
become substantially populated.

Title: The prospects of sympathetic cooling of NH molecules with Li atoms
Authors: Alisdair O. G. Wallis, Edward J. J. Longdon, Piotr S. \.Zuchowski and
   Jeremy M. Hutson
Categories: physics.atom-ph physics.atm-clus physics.chem-ph
   We calculate the quartet potential energy surface for Li+NH and use it to
calculate elastic and spin-relaxation cross sections for collisions in
magnetically trappable spin-stretched states. The potential is strongly
anisotropic but spin-relaxation collisions are still suppressed by centrifugal
barriers when both species are in spin-stretched states. In the ultracold
regime, both the elastic and inelastic cross sections fluctuate dramatically as
the potential is varied because of Feshbach resonances. The
potential-dependence is considerably reduced at higher energies. The major
effect of using an unconverged basis set in the scattering calculations is to
shift the resonances without changing their general behaviour. We have
calculated the ratio of elastic and spin-relaxation cross sections, as a
function of collision energy and magnetic field, for a variety of potential
energy surfaces. Most of the surfaces produce ratios that are favorable for
sympathetic cooling, at temperatures below about 20 mK.

Title: Tensor Renormalization Group: Local Magnetizations, Correlation
   Functions, and Phase Diagrams of Systems with Quenched Randomness
Authors: Can G\"uven, Michael Hinczewski, and A. Nihat Berker
Categories: cond-mat.stat-mech cond-mat.dis-nn
Comments: 8 pages, 7 figures, 1 table
   The tensor renormalization-group method, developed by Levin and Nave, brings
systematic improvability to the position-space renormalization-group method and
yields essentially exact results for phase diagrams and entire thermodynamic
functions. The method, previously used on systems with no quenched randomness,
is extended in this study to systems with quenched randomness. Local
magnetizations and correlation functions as a function of spin separation are
calculated as tensor products subject to renormalization-group transformation.
Phase diagrams are extracted from the long-distance behavior of the correlation
functions. The approach is illustrated with the quenched bond-diluted Ising
model on the triangular lattice. An accurate phase diagram is obtained in
temperature and bond-dilution probability, for the entire temperature range
down to the percolation threshold at zero temperature.

Title: Manipulation of a Bose-Einstein condensate by a time-averaged orbiting

Authors: P.W. Cleary, T.W. Hijmans, and J.T.M. Walraven
Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas
Comments: 11 pages, 9 figures
   We report on the manipulation of the center-of-mass motion (`sloshing') of a
Bose Einstein condensate in a time-averaged orbiting potential (TOP) trap. We
start with a condensate at rest in the center of a static trapping potential.
When suddenly replacing the static trap with a TOP trap centered about the same
position, the condensate starts to slosh with an amplitude much larger than the
TOP micromotion. We show, both theoretically and experimentally, that the
direction of sloshing is related to the initial phase of the rotating magnetic
field of the TOP. We show further that the sloshing can be quenched by applying
a carefully timed and sized jump in the phase of the rotating field.

Title: Optomechanical transduction of an integrated silicon cantilever probe
   using a microdisk resonator
Authors: Kartik Srinivasan, Houxun Miao, Matthew T. Rakher, Marcelo Davanco,
   and Vladimir Aksyuk
Categories: physics.optics physics.ins-det
   Sensitive transduction of the motion of a microscale cantilever is central to
many applications in mass, force, magnetic resonance, and displacement sensing.
Reducing cantilever size to nanoscale dimensions can improve the bandwidth and
sensitivity of techniques like atomic force microscopy, but current optical
transduction methods suffer when the cantilever is small compared to the
achievable spot size. Here, we demonstrate sensitive optical transduction in a
monolithic cavity-optomechanical system in which a sub-picogram silicon
cantilever with a sharp probe tip is separated from a microdisk optical
resonator by a nanoscale gap. High quality factor (Q ~ 10^5) microdisk optical
modes transduce the cantilever's MHz frequency thermally-driven vibrations with
a displacement sensitivity of ~ 4.4x10^-16 m\sqrt[2]{Hz} and bandwidth > 1 GHz,
and a dynamic range > 10^6 is estimated for a 1 s measurement.
Optically-induced stiffening due to the strong optomechanical interaction is
observed, and engineering of probe dynamics through cantilever design and
electrostatic actuation is illustrated.

Title: Boundary effects on the local density of states of one-dimensional Mott
   insulators and charge density wave states
Authors: Dirk Schuricht, Fabian H. L. Essler, Akbar Jaefari, and Eduardo
Categories: cond-mat.str-el
Comments: 28 pages
   We determine the local density of states (LDOS) for spin-gapped
one-dimensional charge density wave (CDW) states and Mott insulators in the
presence of a hard-wall boundary. We calculate the boundary contribution to the
single-particle Green function in the low-energy limit using field theory
techniques and analyze it in terms of its Fourier transform in both time and
space. The boundary LDOS in the CDW case exhibits a singularity at momentum
2kF, which is indicative of the pinning of the CDW order at the impurity. We
further observe several dispersing features at frequencies above the spin gap,
which provide a characteristic signature of spin-charge separation. This
demonstrates that the boundary LDOS can be used to infer properties of the
underlying bulk system. In presence of a boundary magnetic field mid-gap states
localized at the boundary emerge. We investigate the signature of such bound
states in the LDOS. We discuss implications of our results on STM experiments
on quasi-1D systems such as two-leg ladder materials like Sr14Cu24O41. By
exchanging the roles of charge and spin sectors, all our results directly carry
over to the case of one-dimensional Mott insulators.

Comments: 4 pages, 4 figures, accepted for PRA rapid communication
   We simulate the experimental possibility of observing the antiferromagnetic
(AF) order in the bosonic mixtures of rubidium ($^{87}$Rb) and potassium
($^{41}$K) in a two-dimensional optical lattice in the presence of harmonic
confinement. By tuning the interspecies interactions and the lattice heights we
have found the ground states, within the mean-field approximation, that
interpolate from the phase separation to the AF order. For a moderate lattice
height the coexistence of the Mott and AF phase is possible for the Rb atoms
while the K atoms remain in the AF-superfluid phase. This observation may
provide an experimental feasibility to hitherto unobserved AF order for
$^{87}$Rb - $^{41}$K mixture.

   We discuss the creation of non-classical light from collective atomic states
that are prepared in a ring-shaped lattice. These states are realized by
exploiting the strong interaction between atoms in high lying energy levels -
so-called Rydberg states - and yield a resource for creating excitations of the
electromagnetic field that carry few photons. We characterize the properties of
these photonic states showing that they are determined by the interplay between
the ring geometry, the structure of the atomic resource states and the
collectivity in the photon emission which is controlled by the lattice spacing.
The system permits the creation of single photons with well-defined orbital
angular momentum and two-photon states that are entangled in orbital angular

Authors: D.-H. Kim, J. J. Kinnunen, J.-P. Martikainen, P. T\"orm\"a
Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas
   The nature of pairing of fermions with spin polarization is a fundamental
problem in many areas of physics, including superconductors in a strong
magnetic field, neutron-proton pairing in nuclear matter, and color
superconductivity in high density QCD. Non-BCS pairing mechanisms have been
proposed for spin-polarized fermions. The Fulde-Ferrell-Larkin-Ovchinnikov
(FFLO) states exhibit pairing with finite momentum. The polarized superfluid
states, so-called Sarma or breached-pair states, are another candidate. In
ultracold Fermi gases, recent experiments characterized the critical
polarization of the transition to the normal state and the phase separation of
the trapped gases into superfluid and normal parts. Here we present real-space
dynamical mean-field theory calculations for attractively interacting fermions
in lattices with elongated traps. The critical polarization is found to be 0.8,
regardless of the trap elongation. Below the critical polarization, we find
unconventional superfluid structures where the polarized superfluid and
Fulde-Ferrell-Larkin-Ovchinnikov-type states emerge across the entire core

Title: Few-body resonances of unequal-mass systems with infinite interspecies
   two-body s-wave scattering length
Authors: D. Blume and K. M. Daily
Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas
Comments: 17 pages, 17 figures
   Two-component Fermi and Bose gases with infinitely large interspecies s-wave
scattering length $a_s$ exhibit a variety of intriguing properties. Among these
are the scale invariance of two-component Fermi gases with equal masses, and
the favorable scaling of Efimov features for two-component Bose gases and
Bose-Fermi mixtures with unequal masses. This paper builds on our earlier work
[D. Blume and K. M. Daily, arXiv:1006.5002] and presents a detailed discussion
of our studies of small unequal-mass two-component systems with infinite $a_s$
in the regime where three-body Efimov physics is absent. We report on
non-universal few-body resonances. Just like with two-body systems on
resonance, few-body systems have a zero-energy bound state in free space and a
diverging generalized scattering length. Our calculations are performed within
a non-perturbative microscopic framework and investigate the energetics and
structural properties of small unequal-mass two-component systems as functions
of the mass ratio $\kappa$, and the numbers $N_{1}$ and $N_2$ of heavy and
light atoms. For purely attractive Gaussian two-body interactions, we find that
the $(N_1,N_2)=(2,1)$ and $(3,1)$ systems exhibit three-body and four-body
resonances at mass ratios $\kappa = 12.314(2)$ and 10.4(2), respectively. The
three- and four-particle systems on resonance are found to be large. This
suggests that the corresponding wave function has relatively small overlap with
deeply-bound dimers, trimers or larger clusters and that the three- and
four-body systems on resonance have a comparatively long lifetime. Thus, it
seems feasible that the features discussed in this paper can be probed
experimentally with present-day technology.

   We study the response of trapped two dimensional cold bosons to time
dependent lattices. We find that in lattice ramps from 11 (superfluid,
$\hbar/U_{\text{i}} = 3$ms, $\hbar/J_{\text{i}} = 45$ms) to 16 recoils (Mott,
$\hbar/U_{\text{f}} = 2$ms, $\hbar/J_{\text{f}} = 130$ms) the local number
fluctuations remains at their equilibrium values if ramps are slower than 3 ms.
Global transport, however, is much slower (1s), especially in the presence of
Mott shells. This separation of timescales has practical implications for cold
atom experiments and cooling protocols.

Title: Use of Equivalent Hermitian Hamiltonian for $PT$-Symmetric Sinusoidal

Authors: H. F. Jones
Categories: physics.optics quant-ph
Comments: 11 pages, 8 figures
   We show how the band structure and beam dynamics of non-Hermitian
$PT$-symmetric sinusoidal optical lattices can be approached from the point of
view of the equivalent Hermitian problem, obtained by an analytic continuation
in the transverse spatial variable $x$. In this latter problem the eigenvalue
equation reduces to the Mathieu equation, whose eigenfunctions and properties
have been well studied. That being the case, the beam propagation, which
parallels the time-development of the wave-function in quantum mechanics, can
be calculated using the equivalent of the method of stationary states. We also
discuss a model potential that interpolates between a sinusoidal and periodic
square well potential, showing that some of the striking properties of the
sinusoidal potential, in particular birefringence, become much less prominent
as one goes away from the sinusoidal case.

   We present an investigation of the faster-than-adiabatic decompression of a

using an optimal trajectory for the harmonic trapping potential. Using the
scaling invariance properties of the time-dependent Gross-Pitaevskii equation,
we exhibit a solution yielding a final state identical to that obtained through
a perfectly adiabatic transformation, in a much shorter time. Experimentally,
we perform a large trap decompression and displacement within a time comparable
to the final radial trapping period. By simultaneously monitoring the BEC and
the non-condensed fraction, we show that our specific trap trajectory is valid
for both a quantum interacting many-body system and a classical ensemble of
non-interacting particles.

We have described the quantum resonances in position space, for strongly
localized wave packets in comparison to one step of the kicking potential. In
the present article, we extend that approach to experimentally accessible
systems, characterized, on the contrary, by delocalized wave functions in
position space. We demonstrate that the intuitive picture developed previously
is still applicable here. As examples, we consider the dynamics of a thermal
gas and of a Bose-Einstein condensate, both for simple and high-order quantum
resonances. Our numerical simulations enable us to predict new interesting
phenomena, that are explained in a large extent by analytical calculations.

Categories: quant-ph cond-mat.soft
Comments: 6 pages, 5 figures
   The transitory and stationary behavior of a quantum chaotic ratchet
consisting of a biharmonic potential under the effect of different drivings in
contact with a thermal environment is studied. For weak forcing and finite
$\hbar$, we identify a strong dependence of the current on the structure of the
chaotic region. Moreover, we have determined the robustness of the current
against thermal fluctuations in the very weak coupling regime. In the case of
strong forcing, the current is determined by the shape of a chaotic attractor.
In both cases the temperature quickly stabilizes the ratchet, but in the latter
it also destroys the asymmetry responsible for the current generation. Finally,
applications to isomerization reactions are discussed.

Comments: 16 pages and 9 figures, including supplementary information
   Since the discovery of superfluidity in He4 and Landau's phenomenological
theory, the relationship between Bose condensation and superfluidity has been
intensely debated. He4 is known by now to be both superfluid and condensed at
low temperature, and more generally, in dimension D \geq 2, all superfluid
bosonic models realized in experiments are condensed in their ground state.
Recent examples include ultracold bosonic atoms trapped in an optical lattice
or effective bosons describing magnetic excitations in quantum magnets. In this
paper, it is shown that a 2D gas of bosons which is superfluid but not
condensed at T=0 can be achieved by populating a layer through a frustrated
proximity effect from a superfluid reservoir. This bosonic fluid is
characterized by specific scaling laws and incommensurate correlations. This
leads to several predictions for the quantum antiferromagnet BaCuSi2O6 (Han

   We investigate the possibility of measuring the thermal Casimir force and its
gradient in the configuration of a plate and a microfabricated cylinder
attached to a micromachined oscillator. The Lifshitz-type formulas in this
configuration are derived using the proximity force approximation. The accuracy
for the obtained expressions is determined from a comparison with exact results
available in ideal metal case. Computations of the thermal correction to both
the Casimir force and its gradient are performed in the framework of different
theoretical approaches proposed in the literature. The correction to the
Casimir force and its gradient due to lack of parallelism of the plate and
cylinder is determined using the nonmultiplicative approach. The error
introduced in the theory due to the finite length of the cylinder is estimated.
We propose that both static and dynamic experiments measuring the thermal
Casimir interaction between a cylinder and a plate using a micromachined
oscillator can shed additional light on the thermal Casimir force problem.
Specifically, it is shown that the static experiment is better adapted for the
measurement of thermal effects.

irreducible functional. For the Polchinski scheme the amputation of full
(instead of bare) Green functions improves treatment of the self-energy
effects, but the structure of the corresponding equations is not suitable to
treat strong-coupling problems; it is not also evident, how the mean-field (MF)
solution of these problems is recovered in this scheme. For Wick-ordered scheme
the proper adjustment of the Green function, with respect to which the Wick
ordering is performed, allows to obtain relatively simple form of fRG
hierarchy, which reproduce MF solution and may be suitable for treatment of

approximation schemes. On the one hand, the Phi-derivable approximations allow
for a simple truncation of the infinite hierarchy of the renormalization group
flow equations. On the other hand, the flow equations turn the non linear
equations that derive from the Phi-derivable approximations into an initial
value problem, offering new practical ways to solve these equations.

   Physics at the Planck scale could be revealed by looking for tiny violations
of fundamental symmetries in low energy experiments. In 2008, a sensitive test
of the isotropy of the Universe using has been performed with stored ultracold
neutrons (UCN), this is the first clock-comparison experiment performed with
free neutrons. During several days we monitored the Larmor frequency of neutron
spins in a weak magnetic field using the Ramsey resonance technique. An
non-zero cosmic axial field, violating rotational symmetry, would induce a
daily variation of the precession frequency. Our null result constitutes one of
the most stringent tests of Lorentz invariance to date.

Title: A New Method of Calculating the Spin-Wave Velocity $c$ of Spin-1/2
   Antiferromagnets With $O(N)$ Symmetry in a Monte Carlo Simulation
Authors: F.-J. Jiang
Categories: cond-mat.str-el hep-lat hep-ph
Comments: 5 pages, 7 figures
   Motivated by the so-called cubical regime in magnon chiral perturbation
theory, we propose a new method to calculate the low-energy constant, namely
the spin-wave velocity $c$ of spin-1/2 antiferromagnets with $O(N)$ symmetry in
a Monte Carlo simulation. Specifically we suggest that $c$ can be determined by
$c = L/\beta$ when the squares of the spatial and temporal winding numbers are
tuned to be the same in the Monte Carlo calculations. Here $\beta$ and $L$ are
the inverse temperature and the box size used in the simulations when this
condition is met. We verify the validity of this idea by simulating the quantum
spin-1/2 XY model. The $c$ obtained by using the squares of winding numbers is
given by $c = 1.1348(5)Ja$ which is consistent with the known values of $c$ in
the literature. Unlike other conventional approaches, our new idea provides a
direct method to measure $c$. Further, by simultaneously fitting our Monte
Carlo data of susceptibilities $\chi_{11}$ and spin susceptibilities $\chi$ to
their theoretical predictions from magnon chiral perturbation theory, we find
$c$ is given by $c = 1.1347(2)Ja$ which agrees with the one we obtain by the
new method of using the squares of winding numbers. The low-energy constants
magnetization density ${\cal M}$ and spin stiffenss $\rho$ of quantum spin-1/2
XY model are determined as well and are given by ${\cal M} = 0.43561(1)/a^2$
and $\rho = 0.26974(5)J$, respectively. Thanks to the prediction power of
magnon chiral perturbation theory which puts a very restricted constraint among
the low-energy constants for the model considered here, the accuracy of ${\cal
M}$ we present in this study is much precise than previous Monte Carlo result.

Authors: Thomas Monz, Philipp Schindler, Julio T. Barreiro, Michael Chwalla,

Comments: 4 pages, 3 figures, 1 table
   We report the creation of large Schroedinger-Cat states with up to 14 qubits.
By investigating their coherence over time, we observe a decay proportional to
the square of the number of qubits. The observed decay agrees with our
theoretical model which assumes a system affected only by correlated, Gaussian
phase noise. Our model holds for the majority of current experimental systems
developed towards quantum computation and quantum metrology.

Title: Acoustic white holes in flowing atomic Bose-Einstein condensates
Authors: Carlos Mayoral, Alessio Recati, Alessandro Fabbri, Renaud Parentani,
   Roberto Balbinot, Iacopo Carusotto
Categories: cond-mat.quant-gas gr-qc hep-th
   We study acoustic white holes in a steadily flowing atomic Bose-Einstein
condensate. A white hole configuration is obtained when the flow velocity goes
from a super-sonic value in the upstream region to a sub-sonic one in the
downstream region. The scattering of phonon wavepackets on a white hole horizon
is numerically studied in terms of the Gross-Pitaevskii equation of mean-field
theory: dynamical stability of the acoustic white hole is found, as well as a
signature of a nonlinear back-action of the incident phonon wavepacket onto the
horizon. The correlation pattern of density fluctuations is numerically studied
by means of the truncated-Wigner method which includes quantum fluctuations.
Signatures of the white hole radiation of correlated phonon pairs by the
horizon are characterized; analogies and differences with Hawking radiation
from acoustic black holes are discussed. In particular, a short wavelength
feature is identified in the density correlation function, whose amplitude
steadily grows in time since the formation of the horizon. The numerical
observations are quantitatively interpreted by means of an analytical
Bogoliubov theory of quantum fluctuations for a white hole configuration within
the step-like horizon approximation.

Title: Solid phases and pairing in a mixture of polar molecules and atoms
Authors: B. Capogrosso-Sansone
Categories: cond-mat.stat-mech cond-mat.other
Comments: 5 pages, 4 figures
   We consider a mixture of hard core bosonic polar molecules, interacting via
repulsive dipole-dipole interaction, and one atomic bosonic species. The
mixture is confined on a two-dimensional square lattice and, at low enough
temperatures, can be described by the two-component Bose-Hubbard model. The
latter displays a extremely rich phase diagram including solid, superfluid,
supersolid phases. Here we mainly focus on the checkerboard molecular solid,
stabilized by the long range dipolar interaction, and study how the presence of
atoms affects its robustness both at zero and finite temperature. We find that,
due to atom-molecule interaction, solid phases can be stabilized at both,
(much) lower strengths of dipolar interaction and higher temperatures, than
when no atoms are present. As a byproduct, atoms also order in a solid phase
with same melting temperatures as for molecules. Finally, we find that for
large enough interaction between atoms and molecules a paired supersolid phase
can be stabilized.
