Onedimensional gas of bosons with Feshbachresonant interactions
Abstract
We present a study of a gas of bosons confined in one dimension with Feshbachresonant interactions, at zero temperature. Unlike the gas of onedimensional bosons with non resonant interactions, which is known to be equivalent to a system of interacting spinless fermions and can be described using the Luttinger liquid formalism, the resonant gas possesses additional features. Depending on its parameters, the gas can be in one of three possible regimes. In the simplest of those, it can still be described by the Luttinger liquid theory, but its Fermi momentum cannot be larger than a certain cutoff momentum dependent on the details of the interactions. In the other two regimes, it is equivalent to a Luttinger liquid at low density only. At higher densities its excitation spectrum develops a minimum, similar to the roton minimum in helium, at momenta where the excitations are in resonance with the Fermi sea. As the density of the gas is increased further, the minimum dips below the Fermi energy, thus making the ground state unstable. At this point the standard ground state gets replaced by a more complicated one, where not only the states with momentum below the Fermi points, but also the onesmore »

We study a onedimensional gas of fermionic atoms interacting via an swave molecular Feshbach resonance. At low energies the system is characterized by two Josephsoncoupled Luttinger liquids, corresponding to paired atomic and molecular superfluids. We show that, in contrast to higher dimensions, the system exhibits a quantum phase transition from a phase in which the two superfluids are locked together to one in which, at low energies, quantum fluctuations suppress the Feshbach resonance (Josephson) coupling, effectively decoupling the molecular and atomic superfluids. Experimental signatures of this quantum transition include the appearance of an outofphase gapless mode (in addition to themore »

Quantum phases of a Feshbachresonant atomic Bose gas in one dimension
We study an atomic Bose gas with an swave Feshbach resonance in one dimension. Most of the parameter region is occupied by a phase in which the superfluid fluctuations of atoms and molecules are the predominant ones, due to the phase fluctuations of atoms and molecules being locked by a Josephson coupling between them. When the density difference between atoms and molecules is close to zero, two additional phases may exist: the twocomponent Luttinger liquid, which contains two branches of gapless excitations, and the interchannel charge density wave where the relative density fluctuations between atoms and molecules are frozen atmore » 
Feshbach molecules in a onedimensional Fermi gas
We consider the binding energy and the wave function of Feshbach molecules confined in a onedimensional matter waveguide. We compare the binding energy with the experiment of Moritz et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 94, 210401 (2005)] and find excellent agreement for the full magnetic field range explored experimentally. 
FuldeFerrellLarkinOvchinnikov versus BoseFermi mixture in a polarized onedimensional Fermi gas at a Feshbach resonance: A threebody study
We study the threefermion problem within a 1D model of a Feshbach resonance in order to gain insight into how the FuldeFerrellLarkinOvchinnikov (FFLO)like state at small negative scattering lengths evolves into a BoseFermi mixture at small positive scattering lengths. The FFLO state possesses an oscillating superfluid correlation function, while in a BoseFermi mixture correlations are monotonic. We find that this behavior is already present at the threebody level. We present an exact study of the threebody problem and gain extra insights by considering world lines of a pathintegral Monte Carlo calculation. 
Validity and significance of timedependent Hartree approximation for a onedimensional system of bosons with attractive deltafunction interactions
The Hartree (meanfield) approximation to the description of the scattering of two heavy bound states is studied in a model consisting of bosons with attractive deltafunction interactions. The approximation is derived from matrix elements of the Heisenberg equations of motion of the system and requires careful enumeration of all necessary approximations. The arguments made are verified by comparison of exact and approximate scattering amplitudes. The derivation also yields the physical significance of the amplitude which satisfies the Hartree approximation; it is a Fourier sum over amplitudes for different channels, which can in prinicple be recovered individually. The approach is notmore »
