Spinor Bose-Einstein Condensates: A Dipolar Magnetic Superfluid


We have used dispersive non-destructive imaging to measure the complete vector magnetization of spinor Bose-Einstein condensates in situ. Recent applications of this method include the study of spontaneous symmetry breaking and topological defect formation at a quantum phase transition, observations of the dissolution of spin textures due to long-range magnetic dipole interactions, and also implementation spatially resolved high-precision magnetometry.
