Abstract

We have studied theoretically the Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) of two-dimensional excitons in a ring with a random variation of the effective exciton potential along the circumference. We derive a nonlinear Gross-Pitaevkii equation (GPE) for such a condensate, which is valid even in the presence of a weak magnetic field. For several types of the random potentials our numerical solution of the ground state of the GPE displays a necklace-like structure. This is a consequence of the interplay between the random potential and a strong nonlinear repulsive term of the GPE. We have investigated how the mean distance between modulation peaks depends on properties of the random potentials.
