Abstract

The effects of the trapping potential on the critical temperature Tc for the Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) transition to a superfluid state in trapped atomic gases of fermions were discussed. It was found that for anharmonic traps, Tc increased by several orders of magnitude in comparison to a harmonic trap. The analysis showed that the critical temperature for the BCS transition were manipulated by shaping the traps confining the atomic Fermi gases.
