报告题目:Exotic states of bosons with the synthetic spin–orbit coupling
 要:The spin–orbit coupling with bosons gives rise to novel properties that are absent in usual bosonic systems. In this paper, we consider this class of unconventional Bose–Einstein condensations for both the 2D Rashba and 3Dσ ·p-type Weyl spin–orbit couplings. The single-particle levels show  Landau-level-like quantization in the harmonic trap. Interacting condensates develop the half-quantum vortex structure spontaneously which breaks the time-reversal symmetry and exhibits topological spin textures of the skyrmion type. Rotating spin–orbit-coupled condensates exhibit rich vortex structures due to the interplay between vorticity and spin texture. In particular, the 3D Weyl coupling generates topological defects in the quaternionic phase space as an SU(2) generalization of the usual U(1) vortices.
