We investigate the occurence of Wigner-localization phenomena in bosonic dipolar ultracold few-body systems with Rashba-like spin-orbit coupling. We show that the latter strongly enhances the effects of the dipole-dipole interactions, allowing to reach the Wigner-localized regime for strengths of the dipole moment much smaller than those necessary in the spin-orbit-free case.

Properties of spin–orbit-coupled Bose–Einstein condensates
The experimental and theoretical research of spin–orbit-coupled ultracold atomic gases has advanced and expanded rapidly in recent years. Here, we review some of the progress that either was


Meron ground state of Rashba spin-orbit-coupled dipolar bosons.
It is shown that this internal spin-orbit coupling plays a crucial role in the rich ground-state phase diagram of the trapped condensate and predicts the emergence of a thermodynamically stable ground state with a meron spin configuration.
Spin-orbit-enhanced Wigner localization in quantum dots
We investigate quantum dots with Rashba spin-orbit coupling in the strongly-correlated regime. We show that the presence of the Rashba interaction enhances the Wigner localization in these systems,
Spin-orbit-coupled dipolar Bose-Einstein condensates.
It is shown that, in addition to the stripe structures induced by the spin-orbit coupling, the magnetic dipole-dipole interaction gives rise to the vortex phase, in which a spontaneous spin vortex is formed.
The physics of dipolar bosonic quantum gases
This paper reviews the recent theoretical and experimental advances in the study of ultra-cold gases made of bosonic particles interacting via the long-range, anisotropic dipole–dipole interaction,
Strongly correlated states of ultracold rotating dipolar Fermi gases.
We study strongly correlated ground and excited states of rotating quasi-2D Fermi gases constituted of a small number of dipole-dipole interacting particles with dipole moments polarized
Emergence of topological and strongly correlated ground states in trapped Rashba spin-orbit-coupled Bose gases
We theoretically study an interacting few-body system of Rashba spin-orbit coupled two-component Bose gases confined in a harmonic trapping potential. We solve the interacting Hamiltonian at large
Tunable Wigner states with dipolar atoms and molecules.
While the individual Wigner states are well described by a classical analysis, the transitions between different Wigners are strongly affected by quantum statistics, which can be understood by considering the interplay between quantum-mechanical and spatial symmetry properties.
Bosonic and fermionic dipoles on a ring.
We show that dipolar bosons and fermions confined in a quasi-one-dimensional ring trap exhibit a rich variety of states because their interaction is inhomogeneous. For purely repulsive interactions,
Ground-state properties of few dipolar bosons in a quasi-one-dimensional harmonic trap
We study the ground state of few bosons with repulsive dipole-dipole interaction in a quasi-one-dimensional harmonic trap by means of the exact diagonalization method. Up to three interaction regimes
Quantum phases of a two-dimensional dipolar fermi gas.
It is shown that the interplay between the anisotropy of the dipole-dipole interaction, the geometry of the system, and the p-wave symmetry of the superfluid order parameter means that the effective interaction for pairing can be made very large without the system collapsing.
