Self trapping in the two-dimensional Bose-Hubbard model    [PDF]

Andrew Jreissaty, Juan Carrasquilla, Marcos Rigol
We study the expansion of harmonically trapped bosons in a two-dimensional lattice after suddenly turning off the confining potential. We show that, in the presence of multiple occupancies per lattice site and strong interactions, the system exhibits a clear dynamical separation into trapped and expanding clouds. We discuss how this effect can be understood within a simple picture by invoking doublons and Bose enhancement. This picture is corroborated by an analysis of the momentum distribution function of trapped and expanding bosons.
