Optically Induced Coherent Rotation and Vortex Creation in Trapped Bose-Einstein Condensates

The research on trapped ultracold atomic gases has become one of the most exciting areas in physics since the experimental realization of Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) in magnetic traps. One aspect of particular current interest is whether such gaseous atomic BEC also exhibit superfluid properties as in liquid helium.
