Critical behaviour of Bose gases with tuneable interactions in uniform box traps

Project description

English EN

Gaining new insight into the physics of ultracold bosons

Atomic gases cooled down to ultralow temperatures of a few nanokelvin above absolute zero offer an outstanding platform for investigating quantum phenomena in many-body systems. The ability to control the interactions between ultracold atomic gases coupled with techniques such as optical box traps allows scientists to study a range of multi-body physics phenomena in controlled conditions. The EU-funded project CriticalBoseBox will create a Bose–Einstein condensate (ultracold bosons) in an optical box trap to experimentally study the critical behaviour of such a gas near its condensation temperature. Project results will put Europe at the forefront of atomic physics and quantum optics research.
