Abstract [en]

Lattice Compactons, discrete breathers with compact support, were found for a discrete nonlinear Schrödinger (DNLS) equation extended with nearest neighbour intersite nonlinearities, a model originally studied with waveguide arrays in mind. These compactons were shown to exhibit very good mobility if the parameters are tuned close to the compactons stability boundary. The DNLS can also be used to model the behaviour of Bose-Einstein condensates in optical lattices, and the remarkable control over the experiments in this field of research has made it possible to study the quantum mechanics of strongly correlated atoms.

We will define the concept of a Quantum Lattice Compacton and discuss the existence and dynamics, with special emphasis on mobility, of these in an extended Bose-Hubbard model corresponding to above-mentioned extended DNLS equation in the quantum mechanical limit.

The compactons is given 'a kick' by means of a phase-gradient and it is shown that the size of this phase is crucial for the mobility of the compactons. For small phase-gradients, corresponding to a slow coherent motion in the classical model, the time-scales of the quantum tunnelings become of the same order as the time-scale of the translational motion and the classical mobility is destroyed by quantum fluctuations. For large phase-gradients, corresponding to rapid classical motion, the classical and quantum time-scales separate so that a mobile, localized coherent quantum state can be translated many sites in the lattice already for small particle numbers of the order of 10.
