Quantum depletion of collapsing Bose-Einstein condensates

Wuester, Sebastian; Dabrowska-Wuster, Beata; Bradley, Adrian J; Davis, Matthew John; Blakie, P. Blair; Hope, Joseph; Savage, Craig


We perform the first numerical three-dimensional studies of quantum field effects in the Bosenova experiment on collapsing condensates by E. Donley [Nature (London) 415, 39 (2002)] using the exact experimental geometry. In a stochastic truncated Wigner simulation of the collapse, the collapse times are larger than the experimentally measured values. We find that a finite temperature initial state leads to an increased creation rate of uncondensed atoms, but not to a reduction of the collapse...[Show more]
