Azimuthal vortex clusters in Bose-Einstein condensates
We describe, analytically and numerically, topologically nontrivial stationary states with azimuthal modulation of density in a repulsive Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) confined in a harmonic trap. We show that, depending on the number of density peaks and total topological charge, these states can have a sophisticated phase texture associated with a vortex cluster. For a given topological charge, the form of density distribution and the structure of phase singularities are uniquely linked,...[Show more]
