Self-stabilized Bose polarons

  title={Self-stabilized Bose polarons},
  author={Richard Schmidt and Tilman Enss},
The mobile impurity in a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) is a paradigmatic many-body problem. For weak interaction between the impurity and the BEC, the impurity deforms the BEC only slightly and it is well described within the Fröhlich model and the Bogoliubov approximation. For strong local attraction this standard approach, however, fails to balance the local attraction with the weak repulsion between the BEC particles and predicts an instability where an infinite number of bosons is…

From Efimov Physics to the Bose Polaron using Gaussian States
Since the Efimov effect was introduced in 1970, a detailed theoretical understanding of Efimov physics has been developed in the few-body context. However, it has proven to be challenging to describe
Disorder in order: localization in a randomless cold atom system
We present a mapping between the Edwards model of disorder describing the motion of a single particle subject to randomly-positioned static scatterers and the Bose polaron problem of a light quantum
Polaron-Depleton Transition in the Yrast Excitations of a One-Dimensional Bose Gas with a Mobile Impurity
We present exact numerical data for the lowest-energy momentum eigenstates (yrast states) of a repulsive spin impurity in a one-dimensional Bose gas using full configuration interaction quantum Monte
Pattern Formation in One-Dimensional Polaron Systems and Temporal Orthogonality Catastrophe
Recent studies have demonstrated that higher than two-body bath-impurity correlations are not important for quantitatively describing the ground state of the Bose polaron. Motivated by the above, we
Static Impurities in a Weakly Interacting Bose Gas
We present a comprehensive discussion of the ground-state properties of dilute D-dimensional Bose gas interacting with a few static impurities. Assuming the short-ranged character of the
Self-Pinning Transition of a Tonks-Girardeau Gas in a Bose-Einstein Condensate.
We show that a Tonks-Girardeau (TG) gas that is immersed in a Bose-Einstein condensate can undergo a transition to a crystal-like Mott state with regular spacing between the atoms without any

Impurity in a Bose-Einstein Condensate and the Efimov Effect.
It is shown that the energy and quasiparticle residue of the dressed impurity (polaron) are significantly lowered by three-body correlations, even for weak interactions where there is no Efimov trimer state in a vacuum.
Observation of Attractive and Repulsive Polarons in a Bose-Einstein Condensate.
Radio frequency spectroscopy of ultracold bosonic ^{39}K atoms is used to experimentally demonstrate the existence of a well-defined quasiparticle state of an impurity interacting with a BEC, and finds excellent agreement with theories that incorporate three-body correlations, both in the weak-coupling limits and across unitarity.
Impurity in a Bose-Einstein condensate: Study of the attractive and repulsive branch using quantum Monte Carlo methods
We investigate the properties of an impurity immersed in a dilute Bose gas at zero temperature using quantum Monte-Carlo methods. The interactions between bosons are modeled by a hard sphere
Dissipative correlated dynamics of a moving impurity immersed in a Bose–Einstein condensate
We unravel the nonequilibrium correlated quantum quench dynamics of an impurity traveling through a harmonically confined Bose-Einstein condensate in one-dimension. For weak repulsive interspecies
Strong-coupling Bose polarons in a Bose-Einstein condensate
We use a non-perturbative renormalization group approach to develop a unified picture of the Bose polaron problem, where a mobile impurity is strongly interacting with a surrounding Bose-Einstein
Fate of the Bose polaron at finite temperature
We consider an impurity immersed in a Bose-Einstein condensate with tunable boson-impurity interactions. Such a Bose polaron has recently been predicted to exhibit an intriguing energy spectrum at
Feynman path-integral treatment of the BEC-impurity polaron
The description of an impurity atom in a Bose-Einstein condensate can be cast in the form of Frohlich's polaron Hamiltonian, where the Bogoliubov excitations play the role of the phonons. An

We study the ground state properties and nonequilibrium dynamics of two spinor bosonic impurities immersed in a one-dimensional bosonic gas upon applying an interspecies interaction quench. For the
Real-space dynamics of attractive and repulsive polarons in Bose-Einstein condensates
We investigate the formation of a Bose polaron when a single impurity in a Bose-Einstein condensate is quenched from a non-interacting to an attractively interacting state in the vicinity of a
Self-trapping of impurities in Bose-Einstein condensates: Strong attractive and repulsive coupling
We study the interaction-induced localization —the so-called self-trapping— of a neutral impurity atom immersed in a homogeneous Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC). Based on a Hartree description of the
