Abstract. We study the minimizers of a magnetic 2D non-linear Schrödinger energy functional in a quadratic trapping potential, describing a rotating Bose–Einstein condensate. We derive an effective Thomas–Fermi-like model in the rapidly rotating limit where the centrifugal force compensates the confinement, and available states are restricted to the lowest Landau level. The coupling constant of the effective Thomas–Fermi functional is to linked the emergence of vortex lattices (the Abrikosov… 



Rapidly rotating Bose-Einstein condensates in and near the lowest Landau level.

It is shown that in this mean-field quantum-Hall regime, an ordered vortex lattice is still observed, but its elastic shear strength is strongly reduced, as evidenced by the observed very low frequency of Tkachenko modes.

Strongly Correlated Phases in Rapidly Rotating Bose Gases

We consider a system of trapped spinless bosons interacting with a repulsive potential and subject to rotation. In the limit of rapid rotation and small scattering length, we rigorously show that the

Lowest-Landau-level vortex structure of a Bose-Einstein condensate rotating in a harmonic plus quartic trap

We investigate the vortex patterns appearing in a two-dimensional annular Bose-Einstein condensate rotating in a quadratic plus quartic confining potential. We show that in the limit of small

Vortex lattices in the lowest Landau level for confined Bose-Einstein condensates

We present the results of numerical calculations of the ground states of weakly interacting Bose-Einstein condensates containing large numbers of vortices. Our calculations show that these ground

The TF Limit for Rapidly Rotating Bose Gases in Anharmonic Traps

Starting from the full many body Hamiltonian we derive the leading order energy and density asymptotics for the ground state of a dilute, rotating Bose gas in an anharmonic trap in the ‘Thomas Fermi’

We show that as the number of vortices in a three dimensional Bose-Einstein condensate increases, the system reaches a "quantum Hall" regime where the density profile is a Gaussian in the xy plane

Fast rotation of a Bose-Einstein condensate.

A dramatic change in the appearance of the quantum gas is observed in such a fast rotation regime, the vortices which were easily detectable for a slower rotation become much less visible, and their surface density is well below the value expected for this rotation frequency domain.


In a previous article with A. Aftalion and X. Blanc, it was shown that the hypercontractivity property of the dilation semigroup in spaces of entire functions was a key ingredient in the study of the

Vortex Lattices in Rotating Bose-Einstein Condensates

This paper computes the energy of a regular triangular lattice and of a class of distorted lattices and finds the optimal distortion which provides a decay of the wave function similar to an inverted parabola.
