The behavior of a dilute two-component neutral superfluid Fermi gas subjected to rotation is investigated within the context of a weak-coupling BCS theory. The microscopic properties at finite temperature are obtained by iterating the Bogoliubov-de Gennes equations to self-consistency. In the model, alkali atoms are strongly confined in quasi-two-dimensional traps produced by a deep one-dimensional optical lattice. The lattice depth significantly enhances the critical transition temperature and…

Formation of a vortex lattice in a rotating BCS Fermi gas

Abstract.We investigate theoretically the formation of a vortex lattice in a superfluid two-spin component Fermi gas in a rotating harmonic trap, in a BCS-type regime of condensed non-bosonic pairs.

Anisotropic expansions of a strongly interacting Fermi superfluid containing a vortex

We present a study of static and expansion properties of strongly interacting Fermi superfluids containing a vortex initially trapped by cylindrically symmetric potentials. Based on the

Vortices in Fermi gases with spin-dependent rotation potentials

The rotation of two-component Fermi gases and the subsequent appearance of vortices have been the subject of numerous experimental and theoretical studies. Recent experimental advances in hyperfine

Vortex-lattice structures in rotating Bose-Fermi superfluid mixtures

The system of Bose-Fermi superfluid mixture offers a playground to explore rich macroscopic quantum phenomena. In a recent experiment of Yao et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 117 145301 (2016)], 41 K- 6 Li

Fulde-Ferrell-Larkin-Ovchinnikov vortex lattice states in fermionic cold-atom systems

Condensation of atom pairs with finite total momentum is expected in a portion of the phase diagram of a two-component fermionic cold-atom system. This unusual condensate can be identified by

Vortex arrays in neutral trapped Fermi gases through the BCS–BEC crossover

The formation of vortex arrays in rotating Fermi gases is not limited to ultracold gases but may be relevant in nuclei and neutron stars, so it is important to be able to calculate their properties

Diatomic molecules in ultracold Fermi gases—novel composite bosons

We give a brief overview of recent studies of weakly bound homonuclear molecules in ultracold two-component Fermi gases. It is emphasized that they represent novel composite bosons, which exhibit
