Title: Hidden Order in 1D Bose Insulators

Abstract

We investigate the phase diagram of spinless bosons with long range ({proportional_to}1/r{sup 3}) repulsive interactions, relevant to ultracold polarized atoms or molecules, using density matrix renormalization group. Between the two conventional insulating phases, the Mott and density wave phases, we find a new phase possessing hidden order revealed by nonlocal string correlations analogous to those characterizing the Haldane gapped phase of integer spin chains. We develop a mean field theory that describes the low-energy excitations in all three insulating phases. This is used to calculate the absorption spectrum due to oscillatory lattice modulation. We predict a sharp resonance in the spectrum due to a collective excitation of the new phase that would provide clear evidence for the existence of this phase.

  • We study an ultracold Bose gas in the presence of 1D disorder for repulsive interatomic interactions varying from zero to the Thomas-Fermi regime. We show that for weak interactions the Bose gas populates a finite number of localized single-particle Lifshits states, while for strong interactions a delocalized disordered Bose-Einstein condensate is formed. We discuss the schematic quantum-state diagram and derive the equations of state for various regimes.
  • We study the one-dimensional Bose gas in spatially correlated disorder at zero temperature, using an extended density-phase Bogoliubov method. We analyze, in particular, the decay of the one-body density matrix and the behavior of the Bogoliubov excitations across the phase boundary. We observe that the transition to the Bose-glass phase is marked by a power-law divergence of the density of states at low energy. A measure of the localization length displays a power-law energy dependence in both regions, with the exponent equal to -1 at the boundary. We draw the phase diagram of the superfluid-insulator transition in the limit ofmore » small interaction strength.« less
  • We use an exact {ital holon} and {ital spinon} Landau-liquid functional, which describes the holon-spinon interactions at all scattering orders, to study correlation functions of integrable multicomponent many-particle problems showing both linear and nonlinear energy bands. Motivated by recent photoemission experiments, we consider specific cases when the dominant nonlinear band terms are quadratic and apply our results to the evaluation of the half-filling 1D Hubbard model one-particle spectral functions beyond conformal field theory. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society }

  • The frequency-dependent conductivity is studied for the one-dimensional Hubbard model, using a selection rule, the Bethe ansatz, and symmetries associated with conservation laws. For densities where the system is metallic the absorption spectrum has two contributions, a Drude peak at {omega}=0 separated by a pseudogap from a broad absorption band whose lower edge is characterized by a nonclassical critical exponent. Our findings shed new light on the ''far infrared puzzle'' and other optical properties of metallic organic chain compounds. (c) 2000 The American Physical Society.
