Nuclear Physics Seminar in Tate 301-20
Speaker: Theo Jacobson, University of Minnesota
Subject: Magnetization of Vortices in Spin-0 Superfluids

We show that vortices in spin-0 superfluids can carry magnetic fields localized on their cores. The effect arises whenever the neutral condensing scalar particle is composed of charged excitations with nondegenerate masses. We estimate the size of the effect using effective field theory and comment on its possible experimental observation in superfluid 4-He.
