Droplet states of ultracold gases which are stabilized by fluctuations have recently been observed for dipolar and two component Bose gases. These systems present a novel form of equilibrium where an instability at the mean field level is arrested by higher order correlations making the droplet states sensitive probes of fluctuations. In a recent paper, we argued that thermal fluctuations can play an important role for droplets even at low temperatures where the non-condensed density is much…

Temperature-dependent density profiles of dipolar droplets

Recently, trapped dipolar gases were observed to form high density droplets in a regime where mean field theory predicts collapse. These droplets present a novel form of equilibrium where quantum

It is pointed out that the Popov approximation to the full HFB gives a gapless single-particle spectrum at all temperatures and that the problem of determining the excitation spectrum of a Bose-condensed gas is difficult because of the need to satisfy several different constraints.

Bogoliubov modes of a dipolar condensate in a cylindrical trap (13 pages)

The calculation of properties of Bose-Einstein condensates with dipolar interactions has proven a computationally intensive problem due to the long range nature of the interactions, limiting the

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

Structure of a quantized vortex in boson systems

SummaryFor a system of weakly repelling bosons, a theory of the elementary line vortex excitations is developed. The vortex state is characterised by the presence of a finite fraction of the

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.

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.

Observing the Rosensweig instability of a quantum ferrofluid

This work uses in situ imaging to directly observe the spontaneous transition from an unstructured superfluid to an ordered arrangement of droplets in an atomic dysprosium Bose–Einstein condensate and shows spontaneous translational symmetry breaking.

Dilute dipolar quantum droplets beyond the extended Gross-Pitaevskii equation

Dipolar quantum droplets are exotic quantum objects that are self-bound due to the subtle balance of attraction, repulsion and quantum correlations. Here we present a systematic study of the critical
