The dynamics of a few ultra-cold bosons tunneling from a one-dimensional potential well into open space is studied. In such a system several decay channels can be distinguished, each corresponding to a different number of bosons escaping simultaneously. We show that as the interparticle interaction strength is changed, the system undergoes transitions between distinct regimes characterized by the dominance of different decay channels. These transitions are reflected in the behavior of the decay…

Momentum correlations of a few ultracold bosons escaping from an open well

The dynamical properties of a one-dimensional system of two bosons escaping from an open potential well are studied in terms of the momentum distributions of particles. It is shown that the single-

A comprehensive analysis of the dynamics of two Rydberg-dressed particles (bosons or fermions) tunneling from a potential well into open space is provided. We show that the dominant decay mechanism

Capturing nonexponential dynamics in the presence of two decay channels

The most unstable quantum states and elementary particles possess more than a single decay channel. At the same time, it is well known that typically the decay law is not simply exponential.

One-dimensional mixtures of several ultracold atoms: a review

The recent advances on trapped Bose-Fermi mixtures are described, which allow for a theoretical combination of previous concepts, well illustrating the importance of quantum statistics and inter-particle interactions.

Imaginary-time mean-field method for collective tunneling

Background: Quantum tunneling in many-body systems is the subject of many experimental and theoretical studies in fields ranging from cold atoms to nuclear physics. However, theoretical description

Decay properties of unstable Tonks-Girardeau gases from a split trap

We study the decay properties of Tonks-Girardeau gases escaping from a double-well potential. Initially, the gases are constrained between two infinite $\delta$ barriers with an on-center

Tunneling decay of two interacting bosons in an asymmetric double-well potential: A spectral approach

We study the full-fledged microscopic dynamics of two interacting, ultracold bosons in a one- dimensional double-well potential, through the numerically exact diagonalization of the many-body

Tunneling dynamics of few bosons in a double well

We study few-boson tunneling in a one-dimensional double well. As we pass from weak interactions to the fermionization limit, the Rabi oscillations first give way to highly delayed pair tunneling

Exact decay and tunnelling dynamics of interacting few-boson systems

The decay and tunnelling dynamics of repulsive few-boson systems through a one-dimensional potential barrier is studied from first principles. To this end, we solve the numerically exact

Pairing in few-fermion systems with attractive interactions.

From the tunneling time scales, this work infer the differences in interaction energies of systems with different number of particles, which show a strong odd-even effect, similar to the one observed for neutron separation experiments in nuclei.

The creation of tunable open quantum systems is becoming feasible in current experiments with ultracold atoms in low-dimensional traps. In particular, the high degree of experimental control over

Few-boson dynamics in double wells: from single-atom to correlated pair tunneling.

This work investigates few-boson tunneling in a one-dimensional double well and finds that the tunneling dynamics of two atoms evolves from Rabi oscillations to correlated pair tunneling as the authors increase the interaction strength.

How an interacting many-body system tunnels through a potential barrier to open space

This work analyzes a full, numerically exact many-body solution of the Schrödinger equation of a one-dimensional system with repulsive interactions tunneling to open space and shows how the emitted particles dissociate or fragment from the trapped and coherent source of bosons.
