Sažetak
The quest for synthetic magnetism in quantum degenerate atomic gases is motivated by the research of controllable quantum emulators, which could mimic complex quantum systems. Recent experiments in Bose-Einstein con- densates have produced synthetic magnetic elds by spatially dependent op- tical coupling of the internal atomic states [1, 2]. The mechanism is based upon the analogy between the Aharonov-Bohm phase of charged quantum particles and the Berry phase of atoms adiabatically traversing closed loops in specially tailored laser elds [3]. However, classical (rather than quan- tum degenerate) cold atomic gases have been circumvented in the quest for synthetic magnetism, even though they could emulate in a controllable fash- ion, and in table-top experiments, versatile complex classical systems. One such desirable system for table-top emulation is tokamak plasma. Because of the fairly large atomic velocities, methods based on their adiabatic motion are limited and the desired synthetic magnetic elds should cover larger ar- eas (typically of square millimeter size [4]). On the other hand, schemes for classical gases do not need to be limited by avoiding spontaneous emission. With these guidelines, we present a scheme for obtaining synthetic magnetic elds in classical gases and predict the resulting synthetic Lorentz force on an atomic cloud in motion. Our scheme employs laser-atom interactions and the Doppler e ect to produce a force perpendicular to the velocity of the atoms.
