Title: Control of the geometric phase and pseudospin dynamics on coupled Bose-Einstein condensates

Abstract

We describe the behavior of two coupled Bose-Einstein condensates in time-dependent (TD) trap potentials and TD Rabi (or tunneling) frequency using the two-mode approach. Starting from Bloch states, we succeed in obtaining analytical solutions for the TD Schroedinger equation and present a detailed analysis of the relative and geometric phases acquired by the wave function of the condensates, as well as their population imbalance. We also establish a connection between the geometric phases and constants of motion which characterize the dynamic of the system. Besides analyzing the affects of temporality on condensates that differ by hyperfine degrees of freedom (internal Josephson effect), we also do present a brief discussion of a one-species condensate in a double-well potential (external Josephson effect)
