Charged Phonons in an External FIeld: a QED Analog with Bose-Einstein Condensates

Shay Leizerovitch, Physics Department, Tel Aviv University

We propose a method for using ultracold atomic Bose-Einstein condensates to form an analog model of a relativistic massive field that carries charge and interacts with an external nondynamical gauge field. Such a scalar QED analog model may be useful for simulating various effects of quantum field theory involving charged particles, such as the Schwinger pair creation of ’’charged’’ phonons in a constant external field, and vacuum instability.
