We present a numerical study of the behaviour of two magnetic dipolar atoms trapped in a harmonic potential and exhibiting the standard Einstein-de Haas effect while subject to a time dependent homogeneous magnetic field. Using a simplified description of the short range interaction and the full expression for the dipole-dipole forces we show, that under experimentally realisable conditions two dysprosium atoms may be pumped to a high ($l>20$) value of the relative orbital angular momentum.

The microscopic Einstein-de Haas effect.
TLDR
A noncollinear tight-binding model of an O2 dimer, which includes the effects of spin-orbit coupling, coupling to an external magnetic field, and vector Stoner exchange is investigated, finding that the torque exerted on the nuclei by the electrons in a time-varying B field is not only due to the EdH effect.

Resonant Einstein-de Haas effect in a rubidium condensate.
We theoretically consider a spin polarized, optically trapped condensate of 87Rb atoms in F=1. We observe a transfer of atoms to other Zeeman states due to the dipolar interaction which couples theExpand
Two dipolar atoms in a harmonic trap
Two identical dipolar atoms moving in a harmonic trap without an external magnetic field are investigated. Using the algebra of angular momentum a semi - analytical solutions are found. We show thatExpand
Observing the Einstein-de Haas effect with atoms in an optical lattice.
TLDR
The regime for observing the transfer of spin to spatial angular momentum arises because the total angular momentum is conserved, and the result of utilizing a feeble dipolar interaction may find potential applications in precision measurements. Expand
How to observe dipolar effects in spinor Bose-Einstein condensates.
TLDR
An experiment is proposed which proves the possibility of spinning gaseous media via dipolar interactions in the spirit of the famous Einstein-de Haas effect for ferromagnets by utilizing resonances found in spinor condensates of alkali atoms while these systems are placed in an oscillating magnetic field.

Einstein-de Haas effect in dipolar Bose-Einstein condensates.
TLDR
An initially spin-polarized dipolar condensate is shown to dynamically generate a nonsingular vortex via spin-orbit interactions--a phenomenon reminiscent of the Einstein-de Haas effect in ferromagnets. Expand
Strongly dipolar Bose-Einstein condensate of dysprosium.
TLDR
The Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) of the most magnetic element, dysprosium is reported and it is observed that stable BEC formation depends on the relative angle of a small polarizing magnetic field to the axis of the oblate trap, a property of trapped condensates only expected in the strongly dipolar regime.

Spontaneous demagnetization of a dipolar spinor Bose gas in an ultralow magnetic field.
TLDR
A demagnetization of the Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) is observed when the magnetic field is quenched below a critical value corresponding to a phase transition between a ferromagnetic and a nonpolarized ground state. Expand

The application of a low-field Feshbach resonance to produce a tunable dipolar Bose-Einstein condensate is demonstrated and its characteristic d-wave collapse is observed. Expand

We report on the generation of a Bose-Einstein condensate in a gas of chromium atoms, which have an exceptionally large magnetic dipole moment and therefore underlie anisotropic long-rangeExpand
Anisotropy-induced Feshbach resonances in a quantum dipolar gas of highly magnetic atoms.
TLDR
The first-principle coupled-channel calculation of the collisions between these spin-polarized bosonic dysprosium atoms reveals a strong interplay between the anisotropies in the dispersion and magnetic dipole-dipole interaction, and shows that both types of anisotropy significantly affect the Feshbach spectrum as a function of an external magnetic field.
