The physics of photons and electrons carrying orbital angular momentum (OAM) is an exciting field of research in quantum optics and electron microscopy. Usually, one considers propagation of these vortex beams in a medium or an external field and their absorption or scattering on fixed targets. Here we consider instead a beam-beam collision. We show that elastic scattering of a Bessel vortex beam with a counterpropagating plane wave naturally leads to two vortex-entangled outgoing beams. The vortex entanglement implies that the two final particles are entangled not only in their orbital helicities but also in the opening angles of their momentum cones. Our results are driven by kinematics of vortex-beam scattering and apply to particle pairs of any nature: eγ, e+e−, ep, etc. This collisional vortex entanglement can be used to create pairs of OAM-entangled particles of different nature and to transfer a phase vortex, for example, from low-energy electrons to high-energy protons.

We explore atom-laser-like transport processes of ultracold Bose-condensed atomic vapors in mesoscopic waveguide structures beyond the Gross-Pitaevskii mean-field theory. Based on a microscopic description of the transport process in the presence of a coherent source that models the outcoupling from a reservoir of perfectly Bose-Einstein condensed atoms, we derive a system of coupled quantum evolution equations that describe the dynamics of a dilute condensed Bose gas in the framework of the Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov approximation. We apply this method to study the transport of dilute Bose gases through an atomic quantum dot and through waveguides with disorder. Our numerical simulations reveal that the onset of an explicitly time-dependent flow corresponds to the appearance of strong depletion of the condensate on the microscopic level and leads to a loss of global phase coherence.

We have theoretically studied the electronic autoionization between 17 and 18.3 eV of Rydberg series converging to the B 2Sigma+ state of CO+ (RB series). We have obtained partial and vibrationally resolved differential and total photoionization cross sections by combining ab initio electronic quantities with a variant of the two-step multichannel quantum defect theory (MQDT). The formalism of the Feshbach projection operators is used to separate the electronic quantities needed in the first and second steps of the MQDT. We have introduced the vibrational motion within the Condon approximation. Our results lead to new unambiguous assignments of the RB series. The vibrationally resolved cross sections, the associated branching ratios, and the background and resonant features are discussed in detail and compared with the available experimental data. There is an overall agreement between theory and experiement except for the angular distribution of photoelectrons. [less ▲]
