We consider the non-equilibrium dynamics of a weakly interacting Bose gas tightly confined to a highly elongated double well potential. We use a self-consistent time-dependent Hartree–Fock approximation in combination with a projection of the full three-dimensional theory to several coupled one-dimensional channels. This allows us to model the time-dependent splitting and phase imprinting of a gas initially confined to a single quasi one-dimensional potential well and obtain a microscopic description of the ensuing damped Josephson oscillations.

Author comments upon resubmission
List of changes
-Expanded details of the transverse potential in Sec. 5.1 (Eqs. 54 and 55)
-Added a comment about the reemergence of the oscillations and the relevant time scales (bottom p. 20)
-Added a comment about the time scale of the damping vs the time scale of the gases' breathing motion (top of p. 22).
-Added a comment explaining the relevance of the equations that go beyond SCHF in Sec. 7.
-Elaborated on the useful applications of our work to the modelling of the experiments using (perturbations of) a sine-Gordon model.
