We explore the nonequilibrium dynamics of a two-dimensional trapped Bose-Einstein condensate excited by a moving red-detuned laser potential. The trap is a combination of a general power-law potential cutoff by a hard wall box potential. The red laser potential is allowed to exit the box potential, leaving the system in a highly nonequilibrium state. This is crucial since the red laser potential squeezes the BEC trapped inside it against the hard wall-boundary at this instant, paving the way…
