A NEW FORM OF MATTER: Bose-Einstein Condensation and the Atom Laser
Wolfgang Ketterle, MIT
Bose-Einstein condensed atoms are a novel form of matter which consists of
a giant matter wave. They are produced by cooling a dilute atomic gas to
the lowest temperatures ever achieved. Professor Ketterle will describe
how matter is manipulated and observed at such low temperatures, and how
Bose condensates were used to realize an atom laser.
