We theoretically investigate the temperature effect in a Bose-Bose mixture with attractive inter-species interactions, in the regime where a self-bound ultradilute quantum droplet forms due to the subtle balance between the attractive mean-field force and the repulsive force provided by Lee-Huang-Yang quantum fluctuations. We find that in contrast to quantum fluctuations, thermal fluctuations destabilize the droplet state and completely destroy it above a threshold temperature. We show that the…

Ultradilute self-bound quantum droplets in Bose–Bose mixtures at finite temperature*
We theoretically investigate the finite-temperature structure and collective excitations of a self-bound ultradilute Bose droplet in a flat space realized in a binary Bose mixture with attractive

First-order Bose-Einstein condensation with three-body interacting bosons
Bose-Einstein condensation, observed in either strongly interacting liquid helium or weakly interacting atomic Bose gases, is widely known to be a second-order phase transition. Here, we predict a

Thermal instability, evaporation, and thermodynamics of one-dimensional liquids in weakly interacting Bose-Bose mixtures
We study the low-temperature thermodynamics of weakly-interacting liquids in one-dimensional attractive Bose-Bose mixtures. The Bogoliubov approach is used to simultaneously describe quantum and


Microscopic pairing theory of ultradilute low-dimensional quantum droplets
Ultradilute quantum droplets are intriguing new state of matter, in which the attractive mean-field force can be balanced by the repulsive force from quantum fluctuations to avoid collapse. Here, we
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

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.
Self-bound Bose mixtures
Recent experiments confirmed that fluctuations beyond the mean-field approximation can lead to self-bound liquid droplets of ultra-dilute binary Bose mixtures. We proceed beyond the beyond-mean-field

Abstract We systematically study the properties of dipolar Bose gases with two- and three-body contact interactions at finite temperature using the Hartree–Fock–Bogoliubov–Popov approximation. In
Liquid State of One-Dimensional Bose Mixtures: A Quantum Monte Carlo Study.
In the stable liquid state, the chemical potential, the speed of sound, as well as structural and coherence properties, such as the pair correlation function, the static structure factor, and the one-body density matrix are calculated, thus providing a detailed description of the bulk region in self-bound droplets.
