# Dark matter and dark energy from Bose-Einstein condensate

@article{Das2014DarkMA, title={Dark matter and dark energy from Bose-Einstein condensate}, author={Saurya Das and Rajat Kumar Bhaduri}, journal={arXiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology}, year={2014} }

We show that Dark Matter consisting of bosons of mass of about 1eV or less has critical temperature exceeding the temperature of the universe at all times, and hence would have formed a Bose-Einstein condensate at very early epochs. We also show that the wavefunction of this condensate, via the quantum potential it produces, gives rise to a cosmological constant which may account for the correct dark energy content of our universe. We argue that massive gravitons or axions are viable candidates…

These problems might be solved, and the virtues of CDM models retained, even without postulating ad hoc dark matter particle or field interactions, if the dark matter is composed of ultralight scalar particles initially in a (cold) Bose-Einstein condensate, similar to axion dark matter models.
