Dipolar particles in a double-trap confinement: Response to tilting the dipolar orientation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We analyze the microscopic few-body properties of dipolar particles confined in two parallel quasi-one-dimensional harmonic traps. In particular, we show that an adiabatic rotation of the dipole orientation about the trap axes can drive an initially nonlocalized few-fermion state into a localized state with strong intertrap pairing. With an instant, nonadiabatic rotation, however, localization is inhibited and a highly excited state is reached. This state may be interpreted as the few-body analog of a super-Tonks-Girardeau state, known from one-dimensional systems with contact interactions.
