    Abstract

    Copyright © EPLA, 2015. We describe an ultracold fermionic set-up where it is possible to synthesize a superfluid phase with symmetry obtained by locking independent invariance groups of the normal state. In this phase, named two-flavor symmetry-locking (TFSL) phase, non-Abelian fractional vortices with semi-integer flux and gapless non-Abelian Goldstone modes localized on them appear. Considerations on the possible experimental realization of the TFSL are also provided.
