Bose-Einstein Condensation of Confined Atomic Gases at Ultra Low Temperatures
In this work I solve the Gross-Pitaevskii equation describing an atomic gas confined in an isotropic harmonic trap by introducing a variational wavefunction of Gaussian type. The chemical potentialExpand
Bose-Einstein Condensation of Molecules
TLDR
It is reported on the Bose-Einstein condensation of more than 105 Li2 molecules in an optical trap starting from a spin mixture of fermionic lithium atoms and demonstrated the magnetic field–dependent mean field by controlled condensate spilling. Expand
Bose–Einstein condensation in ultracold atomic gases
Abstract Some of the challenging features exhibited by Bose–Einstein condensed gases are briefly summarized, with emphasis on recent experimental and theoretical advances in the field. Topics includeExpand
Bose-Einstein Condensation of Dilute Gases in Traps
The ground state of a gas of Bosons confined in an external trap potential and interacting via repulsive two-body forces has recently been shown to exhibit complete Bose-Einstein condensation in theExpand
Vortices in atomic Bose–Einstein condensates: an introduction
The occurrence of vortices in atomic Bose–Einstein condensates (BECs) enables a description of their superfluid behavior. In this article, we present a pedagogical introduction the vortex physics inExpand
ON THEORY OF BOSE-EINSTEIN CONDENSATION OF PARTICLES WITH ARBITRARY INTEGER SPIN
The Bogoliubov theory of weakly interacting Bose gas is generalized to Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC) of particles with arbitrary integer spin in a magnetic eld. On the basis of the BogoliubovExpand
Quantum Depletion of a Homogeneous Bose-Einstein Condensate.
TLDR
The quantum depletion of an interacting homogeneous Bose-Einstein condensate is measured and the theory of Bogoliubov is confirmed and reversibly tunable by changing the strength of the interparticle interactions. Expand
BOSE-EINSTEIN CONDENSATION OF PARTICLES WITH SPIN
One of possible ground states and low-lying collective modes of Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) of atoms with arbitrary spin in a magnetic field is studied using Bogoliubov's model for weaklyExpand
Principal problems in Bose-Einstein condensation of dilute gases
A survey is given of the present state of the art in studying Bose-Einstein condensation of dilute atomic gases. The bulk of attention is focused on the principal theoretical problems, though theExpand
Effects of Interactions on Bose-Einstein Condensation
Bose-Einstein condensation is a unique phase transition in that it is not driven by inter-particle interactions, but can theoretically occur in an ideal gas, purely as a consequence of quantumExpand
