Studying Learning in the Worldwide Classroom Research into edX's First MOOC.
Abstract “Circuits and Electronics” (6.002x), which began in March 2012, was the first MOOC developed by edX, the consortium led by MIT and Harvard. Over 155,000 students initially registered forExpand

Cooling Neutral Atoms in a Magnetic Trap for Precision Spectroscopy
A configuration of magnetic fields is exhibited which can harmonically trap paramagnetic particles in a shallow field minimum, superposed on a nearly uniform field which simplifies spectroscopicExpand

Atom interferometry with Bose-Einstein condensates in a double-well potential.
A trapped-atom interferometer was demonstrated using gaseous Bose-Einstein condensates coherently split by deforming an optical single-well potential into a double-well potential. The relative phaseExpand

Contrast interferometry using Bose-Einstein condensates to measure h/m and alpha.
The kinetic energy of an atom recoiling due to absorption of a photon was measured as a frequency, using an interferometric technique called "contrast interferometry." Optical standing wave pulsesExpand

Long phase coherence time and number squeezing of two Bose-Einstein condensates on an atom chip.
We measure the relative phase of two Bose-Einstein condensates confined in a radio frequency induced double-well potential on an atom chip. We observe phase coherence between the separatedExpand
