Spin-orbit coupling in the presence of strong atomic correlations

31 Jan 2020 Usui Ayaka Fogarty Thomás Campbell Steve Gardiner Simon A. Busch Thomas

We explore the influence of contact interactions on a synthetically spin-orbit coupled system of two ultracold trapped atoms. Even though the system we consider is bosonic, we show that a regime exists in which the competition between the contact and spin-orbit interactions results in the emergence of a ground state that contains a significant contribution from the anti-symmetric spin state...
