We create and study persistent currents in a toroidal two-component Bose gas, consisting of 87Rb atoms in two different spin states. For a large spin-population imbalance we observe supercurrents persisting for over two minutes. However, we find that the supercurrent is unstable for spin polarization below a well-defined critical value. We also investigate the role of phase coherence between the two spin components and show that only the magnitude of the spin-polarization vector, rather than…

Another critical point for spin superflow is identified, in which transverse magnon excitations are dynamically generated via spin-exchanging collisions, which leads to the transient formation of axial polar spin domains.
