UltraCold Atom News

Personal tools


Welcome to the UltraCold Atom News (UCAN) web page, dedicated to tracking activity in the study of neutral quantum degenerate gases. Our pages include: a job posting board; information about upcoming conferences; news of observations of Bose-Einstein condensates and degenerate Fermi gases; a general reference page about quantum degeneracy; and contact information for both experimental and theoretical groups active in the field -- so far in 29 countries! We invite anyone working in this field to post their group information; and anyone who has a new BEC or DFG in their lab to post a short announcement on the News list.

This site was inspired by the GSU BEC Homepage. From 1997 to 2002, Charles Clark and Mark Edwards collected informal reports of BEC observations, documenting the emergence of the new field of cold atoms. This is still a useful function of this site, especially for new groups seeing BEC or DFG in their lab for the first time. As the field has matured however, our most active page page has become conferences: announcements for over two hundred meetings have been listed here. If you know of an upcoming cold atoms conference that is missing, either post it or let us know.

Are you a researcher who wants to post to this site?
1. Log in (contact us if you need to register)
2. Post your news: conferences, jobs, observations, etc
3. You will be the owner of your postings, so can return to update or modify as needed
Note that you do not need to contact the organizers to post your announcement: "U CAN" do it yourself...! On the other hand, if you would like some help, or have any comments or suggestions, please contact us. Thanks!
