Superfluid-Quasicrystal in a Bose-Einstein Condensate

Author(s): Junpeng Hou, Haiping Hu, Kuei Sun, and Chuanwei Zhang
A quasicrystal is a class of ordered structures defying conventional classification of solid crystals and may carry classically forbidden (e.g., fivefold) rotational symmetries. In view of long-sought supersolids, a natural question is whether a superfluid can spontaneously form quasicrystalline ord...
