Excitonic Condensation under SpinOrbit Coupling and BECBCS Crossover
Abstract
The condensation of electronhole pairs is studied at zero temperature and in the presence of a weak spinorbit coupling (SOC) in coupled quantum wells. Under realistic conditions, a perturbative SOC can have observable effects in the order parameter of the condensate. First, the fermion exchange symmetry is absent. As a result, the condensate spin has no definite parity. Additionally, the excitonic SOC breaks the rotational symmetry yielding a complex order parameter in an unconventional way; i.e., the phase pattern of the order parameter is a function of the condensate density. This is manifested through finite offdiagonal components of the static spin susceptibility, suggesting a new experimental method to confirm an excitonic condensate.

Excitonic BCSBEC crossover at finite temperature: Effects of repulsion and electronhole mass difference
The BCS to BoseEinstein condensation (BEC) crossover of electronhole (eh) pairs in optically excited semiconductors is studied using the twoband Hubbard model with both repulsive and attractive interactions. Applying the selfconsistent tmatrix approximation combined with a local approximation, we examine the properties of a normal phase and an excitonic instability. The transition temperature from the normal phase to an eh pair condensed one is studied to clarify the crossover from an eh BCSlike state to an excitonic BoseEinstein condensation, which takes place on increasing the eh attraction strength. To investigate effects of the repulsive interaction and the eh mass difference,more » 
Frequency shift and mode coupling of the collective modes of superfluid Fermi gases in the BCSBEC crossover
We investigate the dynamical behavior of largeamplitude collective modes in a superfluid Fermi gas in the crossover from BardeenCooperSchrieffer (BCS) superfluid to BoseEinstein condensate (BEC) based on a hydrodynamic approach. We first solve the superfluid hydrodynamic equations that describe the time evolution of fermionic condensates in the BCSBEC crossover and calculate explicitly the frequency shifts of the collective modes induced by nonlinear effects using the LindstedtPoincare method. The result shows that the frequency shifts display different features in different superfluid regimes. We then study the secondharmonic generation of the collective modes under a phasematching condition, which can be fulfilled bymore » 
Unconventional Pairing in Excitonic Condensates under SpinOrbit Coupling
It is shown that Rashba and Dresselhaus spinorbit couplings enhance the conclusive power in the experiments on the excitonic condensate by at least three low temperature effects. First, spinorbit coupling facilitates the photoluminescence measurements via enhancing the bright contribution in the otherwise dominantly dark ground state. The second is the presence of a low temperature power law dependence of the specific heat and weakening of the second order transition at the critical temperature. The third is the appearance of the nondiagonal elements in the static spin susceptibility. 
BCSBEC crossover and the disappearance of FuldeFerrellLarkinOvchinnikov correlations in a spinimbalanced onedimensional Fermi gas
We present a numerical study of the onedimensional BCSBEC crossover of a spinimbalanced Fermi gas. The crossover is described by the BoseFermi resonance model in a real space representation. Our main interest is in the behavior of the pair correlations, which, in the BCS limit, are of the FuldeFerrellLarkinOvchinnikov (FFLO) type, while in the BoseEinstein condensate limit, a superfluid of diatomic molecules forms that exhibits quasicondensation at zero momentum. We use the density matrix renormalization group method to compute the phase diagram as a function of the detuning of the molecular level and the polarization. As a main result, wemore »
