On the jets emitted by driven Bose-Einstein condensates.

Miguel Arratia

This letter explains features of the emission of jets by driven Bose-Einstein condensates, discovered by Clark et al. (Nature 551, 356359), by drawing analogies with particle and nuclear physics. The widening of the $\Delta\phi=\pi$ peak in the angular correlation function is due to a dijet acollinearity caused by the uncertainty principle, like in parton-parton scattering with "intrinsic $k_{T}$". The constant linear width of the jets follows from quantum diffusion with high jet momentum, a phenomena that is an ingredient of the "color transparency" effect in nuclear collisions. I propose new "jet tomography" studies of exotic forms of matter formed by driven ultra-cold atoms by analogy to studies of the quark-gluon plasma.
