Bose-Einstein condensates in strong electric fields: Effective gauge potentials and rotating states

Kailasvuori, J M; Hansson, T H and Kavoulakis, Georgios LU (2002) In Physical Review A (Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics) 66(5).
Abstract
Magnetically trapped atoms in Bose-Einstein condensates are spin polarized. Since the magnetic field is inhomogeneous, the atoms acquire Berry phases of the Aharonov-Bohm type during adiabatic motion. In the presence of an electric field, there is an additional Aharonov-Casher effect. Taking into account the limitations on the strength of the electric fields due to the polarizability of the atoms, we investigate the extent to which these effects can be used to induce rotation in a Bose-Einstein condensate.
