Vortex-core states in superfluid Fermi-Fermi mixtures with unequal masses

Abstract

We analyze the vortex-core states of two-species (mass imbalanced) superfluid fermion mixtures as a function of two-body binding energy. In particular, we solve the self-consistent Bogoliubov-de Gennes equations for a population balanced but mass imbalanced mixture of 6Li and 40K atoms at zero temperature. We find that the vortex core is mostly filled with the light-mass (6Li) fermions and that the core density of heavy-mass (40K) fermions is highly depleted. This is in contrast with the one-species (mass balanced) mixtures, where equal  amount of density depletion is found at the vortex core for both pseudo-spin components.
