Optimal persistent currents for ultracold bosons stirred on a ring

Anna Minguzzi (LPMMC Grenoble)

We study persistent currents for interacting bosons on a tight ring trap, subjected to an artificial gauge field induced by a rotating barrier potential. We show that at intermediate interactions the persistent current response is maximal, due to a subtle interplay of effects due to the barrier, the interaction and quantum fluctuations. These results are relevant for ongoing experiments with ultracold atomic gases on mesoscopic rings.
