LOFF, the inhomogeneous “faces” of color superconductivity Marco Ruggieri Università degli Studi di Bari Conversano, QCD@work2005, 16 – 20 Giugno 2005

2 High density QCD Hadrons at very high density and low temperature: deconfinement. Degrees of freedom: quarks and gluons. Quarks fill large Fermi surfaces. One gluon exchange is attractive in the color antisymmetric channel. Color Superconductivity

3
3 Superficie di Fermi BCS color superconductivity Fermi Surface BCS: Pairing with zero total momentum

4
4 BCS color superconductivity 2 Phases characterized by diquark condensation: Normal Superconductive

5
5 In nature……… different Fermi momenta of the quarks can be different, because: Weak equilibrium Non-zero masses of the quarks Electrical and color neutrality How can this affect BCS superconductivity ?

6
6 u d u d Different Fermi momenta It is difficult to form pairs with total zero momentum two flavor From now on I consider only two flavor quark matter

7
7 Pairs with non-zero total momenum Inhomogeneous gap parameter LOFF phase

8
8 Cristallography of the LOFF phase One can make the following general ansatz: Usually the wave vectors are choosen along the direction of vertices of regular poliedra Cristallography

9
9 Interesting cristallographic structures P=6 Body centered cube (B.C.C.) P=8 Face centered cube (F.C.C.)

10
10 Smearing of the gap parameter Gap equation = Free energy My goal is to see which is the LOFF structure realized in quark matter. I can do this by comparing the free energy of the various structures. How can I compute such a free energy ?

11
11 (Ruggieri et al. - 2004) Comparison of the free energies BCC FCC One wave BCS LOFF

12
12 LOFF and compact stars ? Mantel + hadron superfluid CFL (if densities are high enough) LOFF, gCFL If If quark matter is present in the core of a could neutron star, then the LOFF phase could be realized there.

13
13 If If LOFF, how can it contribuite to the thermodynamics ? Gapless fermion dispersion laws Fermions are relevant for the thermodynamical properties. Spatial symmetries are spontaneously broken Phonons LOFF BCS

14
14 Conlusions and open questions Different Fermi momenta: pairs with non-zero momemtum. Cristallography of the LOFF phase: smearing approximation. LOFF with three flavors. Transport coefficients. Applications to condensed matter.
