Self-trapped droplets stabilized by quantum fluctuations have been experimentally realized in dipolar gases and binary Boson mixtures. We propose spinor Bose gases as another candidate for droplet formation in this work. For spin-1 gas, we find that spin fluctuations give a dilute but self-trapped state for two different order parameters where the mean-field picture predicts collapse. A polar droplet phase can be stabilized by spin fluctuations for both antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic spin…

Observation of spinor dynamics in optically trapped 87Rb Bose-Einstein condensates.
The equilibrium spin configuration in the F=1 manifold is measured for different magnetic fields and found to show ferromagnetic behavior for low field gradients.
Quantum Droplet States of a Binary Magnetic Gas.
An extended mean field theory is developed for BMG droplets and it is shown that a single-component self-bound droplet can bind another magnetic component, which is not in the droplet regime, due to the interspecies dipole-dipole interactions.
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.
Phonon stability and sound velocity of quantum droplets in a boson mixture
Quantum droplets have been realized in experiments on binary boson mixtures and dipolar Bose gases. In these systems, the mean-field energy of the Bose-Einstein condensation is attractive, and the
New states of matter with fine-tuned interactions: quantum droplets and dipolar supersolids.
The fine-tuning of the interatomic interactions can lead to the emergence of two new states of matter: liquid-like selfbound quantum droplets and supersolid crystals formed from these droplets.
Supersolid striped droplets in a Raman spin-orbit-coupled system
We analyze the role played by quantum fluctuations on a Raman spin-orbit-coupled system in the stripe phase under attractive interspin interactions. We show that beyond-mean-field effects stabilize
Dynamics of F=2 spinor Bose-Einstein condensates.
The rich dynamics in F=2 spinor Bose-Einstein condensates of 87Rb are experimentally investigated and an interplay between mean-field driven spin dynamics and hyperfine-changing losses in addition to interactions with the thermal component is observed.

Spinor Bose gases form a family of quantum fluids manifesting both magnetic order and superfluidity. This article reviews experimental and theoretical progress in understanding the static and dynamic
Spin domains in ground-state Bose–Einstein condensates
Bose–Einstein condensates — a low-temperature form of matter in which a macroscopic population of bosons occupies the quantum-mechanical ground state — have been demonstrated for weakly interacting,
Borromean Droplet in Three-Component Ultracold Bose Gases.
The formation of a Borromean droplet is identified, where only the ternary bosons can form a self-bound droplet while any binary subsystems cannot, as the first example of Borromeans binding due to a collective many-body effect.
