The extensive control of spin makes spintronics a promising candidate for future scalable quantum devices [1]. For the generation of spin-superfluid systems [2], a detailed understanding of the build-up of coherence and relaxation is necessary. However, to determine the relevant parameters for robust coherence properties and faithfully witnessing thermalization, the direct access to space- and time-resolved spin observables is needed. Here, we study the thermalization of an easy-plane…

Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless transitions in a ferromagnetic superfluid
A two-dimensional (2D) spin-1 Bose gas exhibits two Berezenskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless (BKT) transitions in the easy-plane ferromagnetic phase. The higher temperature transition is associated with

Core structure of static ferrodark solitons in a spin-1 Bose-Einstein condensate
We develop an analytical description of static ferrodark solitons, the Z 2 topological defects in the magnetic order, in the easy-plane phase of ferromagnetic spin-1 Bose-Einstein condensates. We find


Spinor Bose gases: Symmetries, magnetism, and quantum dynamics
Spinor Bose gases form a family of quantum fluids manifesting both magnetic order and superfluidity. This article reviews experimental and theoretical progress in understanding the static and dynamic
Spin currents and spin superfluidity
The present review analyses and compares various types of dissipationless spin transport: (1) Superfluid transport, when the spin-current state is a metastable state (a local but not the absolute
Spontaneous symmetry breaking in a quenched ferromagnetic spinor Bose–Einstein condensate
Spontaneous symmetry breaking is explored in 87Rb spinor condensates, rapidly quenched across a quantum phase transition to a ferromagnetic state, and phase-sensitive in situ detection of spin vortices is demonstrated.
Measurement of the spatial coherence of a trapped Bose gas at the phase transition
A direct measurement of the phase coherence properties of a weakly interacting Bose gas of rubidium atoms is reported, which creates a double slit for magnetically trapped atoms using a radio wave field with two frequency components.
Spinor Bose gas in an elongated trap
We examine a spinor Bose gas confined by an elongated trap. Since a spin-independent energy is much higher than a spin-dependent energy in alkali species, the system exhibits different properties by
First-order spatial coherence measurements in a thermalized two-dimensional photonic quantum gas
Measurements of first-order spatial correlations in a harmonically trapped two-dimensional photon gas below, at and above the critical particle number for Bose–Einstein condensation are reported, using interferometric measurements of the emission of a dye-filled optical microcavity.
Spintronics: Fundamentals and applications
Spintronics, or spin electronics, involves the study of active control and manipulation of spin degrees of freedom in solid-state systems. This article reviews the current status of this subject,
Breaking of Goldstone modes in a two-component Bose-Einstein condensate
We study the decay rate $\mathrm{\ensuremath{\Gamma}}(k)$ of density excitations of two-component Bose-Einstein condensates at zero temperature. Those excitations, where the two components oscillate

We use the resonant dipole-dipole interaction between Rydberg atoms and a periodic external microwave field to engineer XXZ spin Hamiltonians with tunable anisotropies. The atoms are placed in 1D and
Observation of universal dynamics in a spinor Bose gas far from equilibrium
This work observes the emergence of universal dynamics far from equilibrium by evaluating spatially resolved spin correlations in a quasi-one-dimensional spinor Bose–Einstein condensate, and establishes an important class of non-stationary systems whose dynamics is encoded in time-independent scaling exponents and functions, signalling the existence ofnon-thermal fixed points.
