Growth in Cold and Ultracold Company Market Prompts Move Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) December 06, 2013 ColdQuanta, Inc. is expanding to a facility two and a half times larger than its current facility. Currently located on Range Street in Boulder, the new facility is less than two miles away at 3030 Sterling Circle. “We have experienced impressive growth in the last two years and have outgrown our current laboratories and office space.” said Rainer Kunz, CEO of ColdQuanta. He added,...

They are the coldest objects in the Universe and are so fragile that even a single photon can heat and destroy them. Known as Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) and consisting of just a cluster of atoms, it has up until now been impossible to measure and control these remarkable forms of matter simultaneously. In a new study published today, 28 November, in the Institute of Physics and German Physical Society's New Journal of Physics, a group of researchers from the UK and Australia have...

Science Community now has entire system available to help drive applications into BEC and Ultracold Atoms. Boulder, CO (PRWEB) September 05, 2013 Notoriously difficult, expensive and time consuming to set up, experiments to create Bose-Einstein Condensates (atoms cooled to temperatures very close to Absolute Zero) have become vastly easier yet much smaller in size. When Eric Cornell and Carl Wieman first demonstrated the existence of as Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC), a form of ultracold...

Groundbreaking BEC Experiments on Space Station Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) June 26, 2013 Bose-Einstein condensates will be produced in space using a system developed and manufactured in Boulder, Colorado. ColdQuanta has already supplied the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) with elements of its physics package destined to create Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC) in the Cold Atom Lab on the International Space Station (ISS). At the heart of the system, which simplifies and expedites the...

Physicists study single-atom lasers Rainer Blatt's and Piet Schmidt's research team from the University of Innsbruck have successfully realized a single-atom laser, which shows the properties of a classical laser as well as quantum mechanical properties of the atom-photon interaction. The scientists have published their findings in the journal Nature Physics. The first laser was developed 50 years ago. Today we cannot imagine life without the artificially produced light waves - lasers have...
