Phase diffusion in a Bose-Einstein condensate of magnons
MetadataShow full item record
Research on the phase transition and phase diffusion between the Mott-insulator and superfluid phase has not yet been done extensively for the case of magnons. In this thesis we start from a model Hamiltonian for an easy-plane magnetic insulator and construct the phase diagram describing the transition between the Mott insulator and superfluid phase. Finally, we consider phase diffusion of the Bose-Einstein condensate in the superfluid phase and find that phase diffusion indeed occurs in a finite-sized system.
