Condensation of atom pairs with finite total momentum is expected in a portion of the phase diagram of a two-component fermionic cold-atom system. This unusual condensate can be identified by detecting the exotic higher Landau level (HLL) vortex lattice states it can form when rotated. With this motivation, we have solved the linearized gap equations of a polarized cold atom system in a Landau level basis to predict experimental circumstances under which HLL vortex lattice states occur.
