We consider the condensate wave function of a rapidly rotating two-component Bose gas with an equal number of particles in each component. If the interactions between like and unlike species are very similar (as occurs for two hyperfine states of (87)Rb or (23)Na) we find that the two components contain identical rectangular vortex lattices, where the unit cell has an aspect ratio of sqrt[3], and one lattice is displaced to the center of the unit cell of the other. Our results are based on an…

Interaction of half-quantized vortices in two-component Bose-Einstein condensates
We study the asymptotic interaction between two half-quantized vortices in two-component Bose-Einstein condensates. When two vortices in different components are placed at distance 2R, the leading
Vortex-peak interaction and lattice shape in rotating two-component Bose-Einstein condensates
When a two-component Bose-Einstein condensate is placed into rotation, a lattice of vortices and cores appear. The geometry of this lattice (triangular or square) varies according to the rotational
Vortex lattices in dipolar two-component Bose-Einstein condensates
We consider a rapidly rotating two-component Bose-Einstein condensate with short-range s-wave interactions as well as dipolar coupling. We calculate the phase diagram of vortex lattice structures as
Stripes and honeycomb lattice of quantized vortices in rotating two-component Bose-Einstein condensates
We study numerically the structure of a vortex lattice in two-component Bose-Einstein condensates with equal atomic masses and equal intra- and inter-component coupling strengths. The numerical
Superfluid drag of two-species Bose-Einstein condensates in optical lattices
We study two-species Bose-Einstein condensates in quasi-two-dimensional optical lattices of varying geometry and potential depth. Based on the numerically exact Bloch and Wannier functions obtained
Dynamics of bubbles in a two-component Bose-Einstein condensate
The dynamics of a phase-separated two-component Bose-Einstein condensate are investigated, in which a bubble of one component moves through the other component. Numerical simulations of the
Vortex lattice locking in rotating two-component Bose–Einstein condensates
The vortex density of a rotating superfluid, divided by its particle mass, dictates the superfluid's angular velocity through the Feynman relation. To find how the Feynman relation applies to
