Topological excitations and spin textures in spinor Bose-Einstein condensates

Date/Time: 11th June 2008 / starts at 15:00 - ()

Speaker: Dr. Y. Kawaguchi (the University of Tokyo, Japan)

The rich order parameter space of multicomponent Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) admit various kinds of topological excitations. In this seminar, I will explain the symmetry property of spinor BECs and then show some intrigung spin configurations.
