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...

A first for the Boulder based company: training physicists to create Bose Einstein Condensates in four days. Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) August 02, 2013 Satyendra Nath Bose and Albert Einstein in 1924 first predicted and described the quantum behavior of atoms when cooled to temperatures very close to Absolute Zero (-273.15C or -459.67F). Advances In laser cooling techniques (for which Claude Cohen-Tannoudji, Stephen Chu and Bill Phillips won a 1997 Nobel Prize) allowed Eric Cornell and...

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...

University of Chicago physicists have experimentally demonstrated, for the first time, that atoms chilled to temperatures near absolute zero may behave like seemingly unrelated natural systems of vastly different scales, offering potential insights into links between the atomic realm and deep questions of cosmology. This ultracold state, called “quantum criticality,” hints at similarities between such diverse phenomena as the gravitational dynamics of black holes or the exotic...

Physicists at Harvard University have realized a new way to cool synthetic materials by employing a quantum algorithm to remove excess energy. The research, published this week in the journal Nature, is the first application of such an "algorithmic cooling" technique to ultra-cold atomic gases, opening new possibilities from materials science to quantum computation. "Ultracold atoms are the coldest objects in the known universe," explains senior author Markus Greiner, associate professor...

Just as the path of photons of light can be directed by a mirror, atoms possessing a magnetic moment can be controlled using a magnetic mirror. Research reported in the Journal of Applied Physics investigates the feasibility of using magnetic domain walls to direct and ultimately trap individual atoms in a cloud of ultracold atoms. "We are looking for ways to build magnetic systems that can manipulate atoms," says author Thomas Hayward of the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom. "By...

Physicists at JILA have for the first time observed chemical reactions near absolute zero, demonstrating that chemistry is possible at ultralow temperatures and that reaction rates can be controlled using quantum mechanics, the peculiar rules of submicroscopic physics. The new results and techniques, described in the Feb. 12 issue of Science,* will help scientists understand previously unknown aspects of how molecules interact, a key to advancing biology, creating new materials, producing...
