Interior gap superfluidity was introduced together with Frank Wilczek. Later on together with our collaborators, we generalized this new possibility of superfluidity to a more broader concept, breached pair superfluidity. In the occasion to celebrate Professor Frank Wilczek’s seventieth birthday and his productive career in several major areas in physics, I dedicate this note to recall the exciting times of developing this idea, the main aspects of the proposed phase, and discussion on its… Expand

Stability criteria for breached-pair superfluidity.
We present simple, concrete, two-fermion models that exhibit thermodynamically stable isotropic translationally invariant gapless superfluid states (breached-pair superfluidity). The mass ratioExpand
Breached pairing superfluidity: possible realization in QCD.
TLDR
A wide universality class of gapless superfluids is proposed, and a limit that might be realized in quark matter at intermediate densities is analyzed, predicting a second-order phase transition from the breached pairing phase to the conventional color-flavor locked phase. Expand
Integrative models for asymmetric fermi superfluids: emergence of a new exotic pairing phase.
TLDR
An exactly solvable model to study the competition between the Larkin-Ovchinnikov-Fulde-Ferrell (LOFF) and breached-pair superfluid in strongly interacting ultracold asymmetric Fermi gases exhibits a new stable exotic pairing phase which combines an inhomogeneous state with an interior gap to pair excitations. Expand
Interior gap superfluidity.
TLDR
A new state of matter is proposed in which the pairing interactions carve out a gap within the interior of a large Fermi ball, while the exterior surface remains gapless, which would define a material that is simultaneously superconducting and metallic. Expand
Polarized superfluidity in the attractive hubbard model with population imbalance.
TLDR
This phase is shown to be stabilized by a potential energy gain, as in a BCS superfluid, in contrast with the unpolarized Bose-Einstein condensate which is stabilized by kinetic energy. Expand
Superfluid stability in the bec-bcs crossover
We consider a dilute atomic gas of two species of fermions with unequal concentrations under a Feshbach resonance. We find that the system can have distinct properties due to the unbound fermions.Expand
The Fermi Gases and Superfluids: Short Review of Experiment and Theory for Condensed Matter Physicists
The study of ultracold atomic Fermi gases is a rapidly exploding subject which is defining new directions in condensed matter and atomic physics. Quite generally what makes these gases so importantExpand
Superfluidity in the interior-gap states
We investigate superfluidity in the interior-gap states proposed by Liu and Wilczek. At weak coupling, we find the gapless interior-gap state unstable in physically accessible regimes of theExpand
Induced P-wave superfluidity in asymmetric fermi gases.
TLDR
It is shown that two new intraspecies P-wave superfluid phases appear in two-component asymmetric Fermi systems with short-range S-wave interactions, and these phases may be realized in experiments with spin-polarized Fermani gases. Expand
Many-Body Physics with Ultracold Gases
This paper reviews recent experimental and theoretical progress concerning many-body phenomena in dilute, ultracold gases. It focuses on effects beyond standard weak-coupling descriptions, such asExpand
