Zitterbewegung in Bogoliubov's System    [PDF]

Yan Li, Hong-Yi Su, Fu-Lin Zhang, Jing-Ling Chen, Chunfeng Wu, L. C. Kwek
We show that Bogoliubov's quasiparticle in superfluid $^3He-B$ undergoes the Zitterbewegung, as a free relativistic Dirac's electron does. The expectation value of position, as well as spin, of the quasiparticle is obtained and compared with that of the Dirac's electron. In particular, the Zitterbewegung of Bogoliubov's quasiparticle has a frequency approximately $10^5$ lower than that of an electron, rendering a more promising experimental observation.
