We have observed Bose-Einstein condensation of molecules, created from a spin mixture of fermionic 6Li atoms. The condensate realizes the limit of tightly bound fermion pairs in the crossover between BCS and BEC superfluidity

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 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
Dissociation dynamics of a Bose-Einstein condensate of molecules (5 pages)
An unstable condensate of diatomic molecules will coherently disassociate into correlated pairs of atoms. This dissociation process exhibits very rich quantum dynamics depending on the quantumExpand
Bose–Einstein Condensation and Feshbach Resonance in Ultracold Quantum Gases and Mixtures
In this chapter we will start with a brief description of the phenomena of Bose–Einstein condensation (BEC) in ultracold Bose-gases of alkali elements 7Li, 23Na and 87Rb [1–3].
Observation of interference between two molecular Bose-Einstein condensates
We have observed interference between two Bose-Einstein condensates of weakly bound Feshbach molecules of fermionic $^6$Li atoms. Two condensates are prepared in a double-well trap and, after releaseExpand
Molecular Bose-Einstein condensation in a versatile low power crossed dipole trap
We produce Bose–Einstein condensates of 6Li2 molecules in a low power (22 W) crossed optical dipole trap. Fermionic 6Li atoms are collected in a magneto-optical trap from a Zeeman slowed atomic beamExpand
Superfluid regimes in degenerate Fermi gases
We give a brief overview of recent studies of quantum degenerate regimes in ultracold Fermi gases. The attention is focused on the regime of Bose-Einstein condensation of weakly bound molecules ofExpand

Unusual condensates in quark and atomic systems
In these lectures, we discuss condensates which are formed in quark matter when it is squeezed and in a gas of fermionic atoms when it is cooled. The behavior of these two seemingly very differentExpand

Emergence of a molecular Bose–Einstein condensate from a Fermi gas
TLDR
This work reports the direct observation of a molecular Bose–Einstein condensate created solely by adjusting the interaction strength in an ultracold Fermi gas of atoms, which represents one extreme of the predicted BCS–BEC continuum. Expand
