Abstract

We investigate tunneling properties of Bogoliubov phonons in a Bose-Einstein condensate. We find that the quasiparticle current of Bogoliubov phonon is remarkably enhanced near the potential barrier at low energies. This leads to the increase of the transmission probability in the low energy region. We show that the quasiparticle current twists the relative phase of the condensate wavefunctions and induces a Josephson supercurrent through the barrier. The Josephson critical current is estimated by calculating the induced supercurrent and phase difference.
