Stability of persistent currents in open dissipative quantum fluids

Li, Guangyao (Leo); Fraser, Michael D.; Yakimenko, Alexander I; Fraser, Michael; Ostrovskaya, Elena


The phenomenon of stable persistent currents is central to the studies of superfluidity in a range of physical systems. While most of the previous theoretical studies of superfluid flows in annular geometries concentrated on conservative systems, here we extend the dynamical stability analysis of persistent currents to open dissipative exciton-polariton superfluids. By considering an exciton-polariton condensate in an optically induced annular trap, we determine dynamical stability conditions...[Show more]
