Feedback is a general idea of modifying system behavior depending on the measurement outcomes. It spreads from natural sciences, engineering, and artificial intelligence to contemporary classical and rock music. Recently, feedback has been suggested as a tool to induce phase transitions beyond the dissipative ones and tune their universality class. Here, we propose and theoretically investigate a system possessing such a feedback-induced phase transition. The system contains a Bose-Einstein…

Self-Ordered Limit Cycles, Chaos, and Phase Slippage with a Superfluid inside an Optical Resonator.
Dynamical phases of a driven Bose-Einstein condensate coupled to the light field of a high-Q optical cavity are studied to show a transition from a spatially homogeneous steady state to a self-ordered regular lattice exhibiting superradiant scattering into the cavity.
Feedback control of an interacting Bose-Einstein condensate using phase-contrast imaging
The linewidth of an atom laser is limited by density fluctuations in the Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) from which the atom laser beam is outcoupled. In this paper we show that a stable spatial mode
Dicke time crystals in driven-dissipative quantum many-body systems
The Dicke model -- a paradigmatic example of superradiance in quantum optics -- describes an ensemble of atoms which are collectively coupled to a leaky cavity mode. As a result of the cooperative
Dicke quantum phase transition with a superfluid gas in an optical cavity
The Dicke quantum phase transition is realized in an open system formed by a Bose–Einstein condensate coupled to an optical cavity, and the emergence of a self-organized supersolid phase is observed.
Quantum ground state of self-organized atomic crystals in optical resonators
Cold atoms, driven by a laser and simultaneously coupled to the quantum field of an optical resonator, may self-organize in periodic structures. These structures are supported by the optical lattice,
Feedback-enhanced self-organization of atoms in an optical cavity
We considered an application of a feedback loop to enhance the self-organization of atoms in a cavity. In contrast to the original setup, we assumed the light leaking from the cavity was
