The eigenvalues for L

are j −k, while for H

Ω

, they are

E

j,k

= 1 + (1 −Ω)j + (1 + Ω)k.

Suppose Ω = 1. These are the Landau levels.

If Ω ∼ 1 then two adjacent levels are separated by ∼ 2. However the distance

between two adjacent states is 1 −Ω ≪1.

5

The Lowest Landau Level

We are interested in the lowest energy state: the lowest Landau level (LLL). This

occurs when k = 0.

Any function ψ of the LLL is a linear combination of the φ

This is an inverted parabola! However it is not in the space of minimisation: to

alleviate this we need to add vortices.

Note

• The LLL analysis is valid for g(1−Ω) ≪1 and is obtained by balancing K.E. and

P.E. terms. We have that the vortex size is of the same order as the intervortex

distance (i.e. interaction between vortices becomes important). Vortices need

not be small.

• In contrast a TF analysis neglects the K.E. and ﬁnds a balance between the P.E.

and interaction energy. We require large g so that vortices are small.

10

Gaussian or Inverted Parabola?

Is the lattice regular or distorted?

A regular lattice provides a Gaussian decay. [Ho, PRL 2001].

However the optimum energy is obtained for the inverted parabola. In this case the

lattice is distorted towards the edges and extends to inﬁnity. The mean behaviour

is that of an inverted parabola. To get an inverted parabola in the LLL, we require

vortices.

distorted (lower energy) regular

So a distorted lattice can change the decay to an inverted parabola and improve

the energy. [Wanatabe et al. PRL 2004; Cooper et al. PRA 2004; Aftalion et al. PRA 2005].

The lattice extends to inﬁnity.

Section 2: Fast Rotation in Toroidal Traps

Introducing an extra term to the harmonic trap removes the possibility of a

singularity occurring when Ω →1. There are two types of trap that can create an

annular condensate;

• Harmonic Plus Quartic: V (r) = ±

r

+ kr

• Harmonic Plus Gaussian: V (r) =

for constants k, l and A.

If we take the negative sign (a ‘Mexican hat’ potential) then the condensate is

always annular (provided µ < 0), irrespective of the angular rotational velocity.

[Cozzini et al. PRA, 2006].

If we take the positive sign then the condensate ground state at Ω = 0 is circular.

As Ω increases then an annulus will develop. [Fetter et al. PRA, 2005].

The parameters create a local minimum of the density at the centre of the

condensate. Numerically we ﬁnd the single vortex state (at the centre) has a

lower energy than a ring of vortices. As Ω increases we see the same qualitative

behaviour as before.

24

Conclusions

• Rotating condensates expand and vortex lattice structures are created within.

• In a Harmonic trap, under the analysis of the LLL, one sees an inverted triangular

lattice that is distorted at the edges. As the rotational angular velocity is

increased, the number of vortices and the extent of the condensate increase.

• For annular condensates, as Ω gets large, their nature depends on the type of

trap used. When the trap is harmonic plus quartic then the condensate expands

inﬁnitely and the annulus becomes inﬁnitely thin. In this case a giant vortex is

created in the central hole of the condensate.

• When the trap considered is harmonic plus Gaussian, then not only do the inner

and outer boundaries of the condensate increase as Ω increases, but also the

width of the annulus increases.
