Abstract:

This ARO research proposal entitled SPIN-ORBIT COUPLED BOSE-EINSTEIN CONDENSATES SOBECs explored properties of the fundamentally new class of coherent states of quantum matter that had been predicted by the PI and subsequently experimentally realized with cold atoms. A unique feature of the SOBECs is a topologically protected spin-orbital degeneracy of the ground state that results in a variety of fascinating, previously unseen phenomena, which can be exploited for ultra-sensitive quantum interferometry, gravimetry, and fault-tolerant topological quantum computing.
