Quantum droplets can emerge in bosonic binary magnetic gases (BMGs) from the interplay of short- and long-ranged interactions, and quantum fluctuations. We develop an extended mean field theory for this system and use it to predict equilibrium and dynamical properties of BMG droplets. We present a phase diagram and characterize miscible and immiscible droplet states. We also show that a single-component self-bound droplet can bind another magnetic component, which is not in the droplet regime…

A new form of liquid matter: Quantum droplets

This brief review summarizes recent theoretical and experimental results which predict and establish the existence of quantum droplets (QDs), i.e., robust two- and three-dimensional (2D and 3D)

Quantum Droplets in Imbalanced Atomic Mixtures

Quantum droplets are a quantum analogue to classical fluid droplets in that they are self-bound and display liquid-like properties — such as incompressibility and surface tension — though their

Striped Ultradilute Liquid of Dipolar Bosons in Two Dimensions

We investigate the phases of a Bose-Einstein condensate of dipolar atoms restricted to move in a two-dimensional plane. The dipole moments are all aligned in a direction tilted with respect to the

Spinor-induced instability of kinks, holes and quantum droplets

We address the existence and stability of one-dimensional (1D) holes and kinks and two-dimensional (2D) vortex-holes nested in extended binary Bose mixtures, which emerge in the presence of

Stability of a flattened dipolar binary condensate: Emergence of the spin roton

We develop theory for a two-component miscible dipolar condensate in a planar trap. Using numerical so-lutions and a variational theory we solve for the excitation spectrum and identify regimes where

Dynamics of quantum droplets in an external harmonic confinement

Recent theoretical and experimental results show that one-dimensional (1D) weakly interacting atomic Bose-Bose mixtures with repulsive interspecies mean field (MF) interaction are stabilized by

Droplet impact on a surface is closely tied to a diverse field of nature and practical applications, while a complete control of its outcomes remains challenging due to various unmanageable factors

Quantum droplets in three-dimensional Bose–Einstein condensates

The properties of 3D Bose–Einstein condensate have been studied with variational and numerical methods. In the variational approach, we use the super-Gaussian trial function, and it is demonstrated

Domain supersolids in binary dipolar condensates

Two-component dipolar condensates are now experimentally producible, and we theoretically investigate the nature of supersolidity in this system. We predict the existence of a binary supersolid state

Two-component dipolar condensates are now experimentally producible, and we theoretically investigate the nature of supersolidity in this system. We predict the existence of a binary supersolid state



Observation of Quantum Droplets in a Strongly Dipolar Bose Gas.

By systematic measurements on individual droplets it is demonstrated quantitatively that quantum fluctuations mechanically stabilize them against the mean-field collapse, and the interference of several droplets indicating that this stable many-body state is phase coherent.

Quantum liquid droplets in a mixture of Bose-Einstein condensates

This work reports on the observation of droplets solely stabilized by contact interactions in a mixture of two Bose-Einstein condensates, and demonstrates that they are several orders of magnitude more dilute than liquid helium by directly measuring their size and density via in situ imaging.

Observation of quantum droplets in a heteronuclear bosonic mixture

We report on the formation of heteronuclear quantum droplets in an attractive bosonic mixture of 41K and 87Rb. We observe long-lived self-bound states, both in free space and in an optical waveguide.

Ground-state phase diagram of a dipolar condensate with quantum fluctuations

We consider the ground state properties of a trapped dipolar condensate under the influence of quantum fluctuations. We show that this system can undergo a phase transition from a low density

Self-Bound Quantum Droplets of Atomic Mixtures in Free Space.

This work observes self-bound droplets in free space, and characterize the conditions for their formation as well as their size and composition, which sets the stage for future studies on quantum droplets, from the measurement of their peculiar excitation spectrum to the exploration of their superfluid nature.

Dilute quantum droplets.

Under these conditions both Bose-Einstein and Fermi-Dirac systems could become self-bound and either boson droplets or fermion "designer nuclei" of various sizes and densities could be manufactured.

Self-bound droplets of a dilute magnetic quantum liquid

Three-dimensional self-bound quantum droplets of magnetic atoms of ultracold atoms are observed in a trap-free levitation field and it is found that this dilute magnetic quantum liquid requires a minimum, critical number of atoms, below which the liquid evaporates into an expanding gas as a result of the quantum pressure of the individual constituents.

Quantum fluctuations in dipolar Bose gases

We investigate the influence of quantum fluctuations upon dipolar Bose gases by means of the Bogoliubov-de Gennes theory. Thereby, we make use of the local density approximation to evaluate the

Quantum Mechanical Stabilization of a Collapsing Bose-Bose Mixture.

It is shown that in a wide range of parameters its excitation spectrum lies entirely above the particle emission threshold and the droplet thus automatically evaporates itself to zero temperature, the property potentially interesting by itself and from the viewpoint of sympathetic cooling of other systems.

Dynamics and statistical mechanics of ultra-cold Bose gases using c-field techniques

We review phase-space techniques based on the Wigner representation that provide an approximate description of dilute ultra-cold Bose gases. In this approach the quantum field evolution can be
