[Historical report created from GSU BEC Homepage:]

"On December 12, 1998, we finally observed BEC in 87Rb:

  • atomic species: 87Rb, |F MF> = |1 -1>
  • trap: double MOT system with a cloverleaf magnetic trap
  • initial number of atoms in 'lower' MOT: 2 x 109
  • initial number of atoms in magnetic trap: 7 x 108
  • loading time: 3 min
  • lifetime of magnetic trap: 70s
  • evaporation time: 70s
  • number of atoms present at Tc: 7 x 106
  • Tc = 320 nK
  • phase space density: Q = 1.2

The BEC team members in the Kuga laboratory are:

  • Yoshio Torii
  • Yoichi Suzuki
  • Mikio Kozuma
  • Takahiro Kuga

Other people contributing to this work have included

  • Noritsugu Shiokawa
  • Yukiko Shimizu
  • Toshiaki Sugiura

Group leader: Takahiro Kuga
