Quantitative Acoustic Models for Superfluid Circuits

Gauthier, Guillaume; Szigeti, Stuart; Reeves, Matthew T.; Baker, Mark; Bell, Thomas A.; Rubinsztein-Dunlop, Halina; Davis, Matthew J.; Neely, Tyler W.


We experimentally realize a highly tunable superfluid oscillator circuit in a quantum gas of ultracold atoms and develop and verify a simple lumped-element description of this circuit. At low oscillator currents, we demonstrate that the circuit is accurately described as a Helmholtz resonator, a fundamental element of acoustic circuits. At larger currents, the breakdown of the Helmholtz regime is heralded by a turbulent shedding of vortices and density waves. Although a simple phase-slip...[Show more]
