Ultracold quantum gases confined in curved geometries are promising systems to explore new physics of many-body quantum systems on shell structures such as Bose-Einstein condensation, superfluidity, vortex dynamics. Recent, pioneering experiments realizing quantum bubbles with RF-decoupled condensed atoms demonstrated the experimental possibility to access these non-trivial topologies. In this Special Topic Collection of AVS Quantum Science, we welcome theoretical and experimental contributions promoting the possibilities and challenges in this new field. Original research as well as perspective and method articles are welcome.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Quantum bubbles and other geometries with boundary conditions (experiments and theory)
- Ultra-cold physics in low dimensions
- Quantum gases on curved manifolds
- Few-body and vortex physics in curved geometries
