1304.7731 (Raina J. Olsen)

High temperature Bose-Einstein condensation into an excited state at

Raina J. Olsen
We describe Bose-Einstein condensation of strongly interacting particles into a quantum state which is an excited single-particle state, but becomes the many-body ground state as density increases because it minimizes the interaction energy compared to other states. Mean field calculations for a graphene potential just wide enough for two closely interacting layers of molecular hydrogen show condensation at temperatures up to 60 K. In the condensed state, molecules hop between layers, increasing the first peak in the pair-correlation function just past the hard core repulsion diameter.
