# Superfluid-normal quantum phase transitions in an imbalanced Fermi gas

@article{Caldas2020SuperfluidnormalQP, title={Superfluid-normal quantum phase transitions in an imbalanced Fermi gas}, author={H. Caldas}, journal={arXiv: Quantum Gases}, year={2020} }

We investigate the superfluid-to-normal zero temperature quantum phase transitions of asymmetric two-component Fermi gases as a function of the chemical potential imbalance $h$. The calculations are performed for homogeneous and trapped imbalanced systems. We concentrate at unitarity, characterized by a divergent interaction parameter $k_F a$, where most of the current experiments are realized. For homogeneous systems, we determine the critical chemical potential imbalance $h_c$ at which…

The superfluidity regime was established in a two-state mixture of ultracold fermionic atoms with imbalanced state populations and the quantum phase transition to the normal state was characterized, known as the Pauli limit of superfluidity.

The in situ distribution of the density difference between two trapped spin components is obtained using phase-contrast imaging and 3D image reconstruction and the phase transition induces a dramatic change in the density profiles as excess fermions are expelled from the superfluid.
