Quantum criticality of spin-1 bosons in a one-dimensional harmonic trap

Noschang Kuhn, Carlos; Guan, Xi-Wen; Foerster, Angela; Batchelor, Murray


We investigate universal thermodynamics and quantum criticality of spin-1 bosons with strongly repulsive density-density and antiferromagnetic spin-exchange interactions in a one-dimensional harmonic trap. From the equation of state, we find that a partially polarized core is surrounded by two wings composed of either spin-singlet pairs or a fully spin-aligned Tonks-Girardeau gas depending on the polarization. We describe how the scaling behavior of density profiles can reveal the universal...[Show more]
