• Exact nonlinear dynamics of Spinor BECs applied to nematic quenches 

    Symes, Luke
    In this thesis we study the nonlinear dynamics of spin-1 and spin-2 Bose-Einstein condensates, with particular application to antiferromagnetic systems exhibiting nematic (beyond magnetic) order. Firstly, we give a derivation ...
  • Fluctuations in Spin-1 Bose-Einstein Condensates 

    Symes, Luke
    Ultra-cold spinor Bose gases present rich physics due to the special combination of superfluidity and magnetism in a quantum system. This system was first realized in 1998 by confining a Bose-Einstein condensate in an ...
