Modulational instability of spinor condensates

Robins, Nicholas; Zhang, W.; Ostrovskaya, Elena; Kivshar, Yuri


The possibility of modulational instability (MI) of the ferromagnetic ground state of the spinor Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) was predicted analytically and demonstrated numerically. It was found that the ferromagnetic spinor BEC is an ideal candidate for the first experimental observation of MI, spin domain fragmentation, and spatiotemporal chaotic dynamics of matter waves.
