Dynamics of a vortex in a trapped Bose-Einstein condensate Academic Article uri icon


  • The velocity of a vortex line as a function of the local gradient of the rotating anisotropic harmonic trap was calculated as a function of the local gradient of the trap potential, the line curvature, and the angular velocity of the trap rotation. The dynamics and various normal modes of the vortex line in condensate was considered in Thomas-Fermi (TF) limit. The dynamics were considered in an axisymmetric trap, two dimensional condensate and three dimensional condensate.
