First observation: BEC!

Group: Riis/Arnold

Authors and contributors: Craig Garvie (PhD student), Erling Riis and Aidan Arnold

It's just got that wee bit colder in Scotland, and it's mid-summer and all. On the 24th of June 2003 we crossed the BEC phase transition at Strathclyde, with 2 105 87Rb atoms in the |2,2> state in the BEC.
The BEC was formed in a localised section of a 10cm diameter magnetic storage ring.
