Quasi-Condensation and Superfluidity in a Ring TrapHansjörg Polster and •Carsten Henkel — University of Potsdam, Germany

Low-dimensional Bose gases suffer from large phase fluctuations that prevent the formation of a proper condensate as defined by Penrose and Onsager. We study a one-dimensional, phase-fluctuating gas in the cross-over region between the ideal gas and the quasi-condensate (weak interactions). Correlation functions of any order are found by mapping the quantum field theory to a random walk in the complex plane, making a classical field approximation [1]. We discuss in particular full distribution functions for the atomic density, including the formation of pairs and clusters at the onset of quasi-condensation. Currently we investigate the distribution function of the total particle current in a rotating ring trap [2] which provides insight into the superfluid behaviour of the gas.
