Effective Nonlinear Schrödinger Equations for Cigar-Shaped and Disk-Shaped Fermi Superfluids at Unitarity


In the case of tight transverse confinement (cigar-shaped trap) the threedimensional (3D) nonlinear Schrödinger equation, describing superfluid Fermi atoms at unitarity (infinite scattering length |a| → ∞), is reduced to an effective one-dimensional form by averaging over the transverse coordinates. The resultant effective equation is a 1D nonpolynomial… (More)
