Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We discuss tunneling properties of Bogoliubov excitations through a potential barrier. We find that the quasi-particle current carried by Bogoliubov excitations is remarkably enhanced near the potential barrier at low incident energies. This explains the increase of the transmission probability of Bogoliubov phonons in the low energy region. In addition, taking into account of the backreaction of Bogoliubov excitations on Bose condensates, we show that the quasi-particle current twists the phase of the condensate wavefunction, leading to a Josephson supercurrent through the barrier.
