    • Abstract

       

      We find that in the spin-polarized hydrogen, Bose condensation occurs for certain quantized values of the magnetic field. Once the field is fixed, sweeping of the radio-frequency results in nuclear magnetic resonance so that condensation and NMR occur simultaneously. We have found that nuclear self-induced transparency occurs. A new excitation designated by the present author as superboojum, which is a discontinuity in the hydrodynamic equations in spin-polarized hydrogen having finite nuclear as well as electronic spin is discovered.
