Bose Einstein Condensation

  • Condensed Matter II –Spring 2007

  • Davi Ortega


Statistics of Idea Gas

  • Two Particles Gas: A and B.

Some Theory

More Theory

Two more useful results

An Last statement

  • This whole theory assume non interacting particles: Schrödinger Equation

  • Interacting Particles: Gross-Pitaeviski Eq.


  • 1938 – Pyotr Kapitsa John Allen and Don Misener: Helium 4

  • 1995 – Eric Cornell and Carl Wieman: Rb87: Pure BEC.

  • 1995 – Wolfgang Ketterle Na23. (4 months later)

Liquid He vs. Diluted Gas

  • Strong Interactions in He qualitatively changes the nature of transition.

  • Diluted Gas

  • Liquid Helium

    • Zero Viscosity
    • And other strange properties.

How to make a BEC ?

  • Heat the atoms: 600 K (gas)

  • Confine them in a beam

  • Decelerate the beam

  • Trap the atoms (Magneto Optical Trap)

  • Magnetic Trapping (avoid atoms recoil by spontaneous emission and random absorption)

  • Evaporative Cooling

Famous Picture

Any other way ?!

Current Research

  • BEC achieved in several atoms.

  • Strange Properties:

  • Wave-like phenomena in atoms.

    • Interference between two condensates.
  • Atom Laser
