"Phases of Rotating Bosons"
We discuss states of matter that arise when ultra-cold, Bose-condensed atoms are made to rotate. For not-too-high rotation, triangular
vortex lattices have been observed. We discuss
the nature of similar lattices for the case of
bosons with 2 or 3 degenerate components. We also
discuss the atomic quantum Hall states that are
expected to form after a quantum melting of the
vortex lattice at ultra-high rotation, and
present experimental signaturesof such states.
