In spinor Bose-Einstein condensates, spin-changing collisions are a remarkable proxy to coherently realize macroscopic many-body quantum states. These processes have been, e.g., exploited to generate entanglement, to study dynamical quantum phase transitions, and proposed for realizing nematic phases in atomic condensates. In the same systems dressed by Raman beams, the coupling between spin and momentum induces a spin dependence in the scattering processes taking place in the gas. Here we show… Expand

Excited-state quantum phase transitions in spin-orbit coupled Bose gases
Excited-state quantum phase transitions depend on and reveal the structure of the whole spectrum of many-body systems. While they are theoretically well understood, finding suitable signatures andExpand


Coherent spin mixing via spin-orbit coupling in Bose gases
We study beyond-mean-field properties of interacting spin-1 Bose gases with synthetic Rashba-Dresselhaus spin-orbit coupling at low energies. We derive a many-body Hamiltonian following aExpand
Spin and field squeezing in a spin-orbit coupled Bose-Einstein condensate
This report investigates spin and field squeezing of the ground state in spin-orbit coupled Bose-Einstein condensate and finds that the presence of the detuning enhances the occupation number of harmonic trap mode, while it suppresses the spin and the field squeezing. Expand
Orbit-induced spin squeezing in a spin-orbit coupled Bose-Einstein condensate
It is demonstrated that an effective spin-spin interaction can be generated by controlling the orbital degree of freedom of the ultracold atoms, and numerically that the phase factor of the prepared initial state affects dramatically on spin squeezing. Expand
Spin–orbit-coupled Bose–Einstein condensates
The engineered SO coupling in a neutral atomic Bose–Einstein condensate sets the stage for the realization of topological insulators in fermionic neutral atom systems and develops a many-body theory that provides quantitative agreement with the observed location of the transition. Expand
Spin-orbit coupled spinor Bose-Einstein condensates.

Quantum Quench and Nonequilibrium Dynamics in Lattice-Confined Spinor Condensates.
Observed spectra of spin-mixing dynamics can be utilized to reveal atom number distributions of an inhomogeneous system, and to study transitions from two-body to many-body dynamics. Expand
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. Expand
Spin domains in ground-state Bose–Einstein condensates
Bose–Einstein condensates — a low-temperature form of matter in which a macroscopic population of bosons occupies the quantum-mechanical ground state — have been demonstrated for weakly interacting,Expand
Anisotropic dynamics of a spin-orbit-coupled Bose-Einstein condensate
By calculating the density response function we identify the excitation spectrum of a Bose-Einstein condensate with equal Rashba and Dresselhaus spin-orbit coupling. We find that the velocity ofExpand
Observation of dynamical quantum phase transitions in a spinor condensate
A dynamical quantum phase transition can be characterized by a nonanalytic change in the quench dynamics when a parameter in the governing Hamiltonian is varied. Such a transition typically onlyExpand
