Spinor Bose-Einstein condensates in double-well potentials

Wang, C; Kevrekidis, P G; Whitaker, N; Alexander, Tristram J; Frantzeskakis, D J; Schmelcher, Peter


We consider the statics and dynamics of F = 1 spinor Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) confined in double-well potentials. We use a two-mode Galerkin-type quasi-analytical approximation to describe the stationary states of the system. This way, we are able to obtain not only earlier results based on the single-mode approximation (SMA) frequently used in studies of spinor BECs, but also additional modes that involve either two or all three spinor components of the F = 1 spinor BEC. The results...[Show more]
