Controlling a PT-symmetric double well by an additional well — •Daniel Haag, Dennis Dast, Holger Cartarius, and Günter Wunner — 1. Institut für Theoretische Physik, Universität Stuttgart
Non-Hermitian Hamiltonians provide an efficient way to describe in- and outcoupling of atoms in Bose-Einstein condensates. Of special interest are PT-symmetric Hamiltonians which often provide PT-symmetric eigenstates with real eigenvalues. These states are truly stationary even though the particles are removed and injected at different locations. We implement such a Hamiltonian for a three-mode system, where one additional well is coupled to a PT-symmetric double well. The influences of the third well on the well known behaviour of the two-well system is studied.
