LKB - Bose-Einstein condensates

Bose-Einstein condensates

The manipulation of atoms using laser light has constituted one of the major achievements of atomic physics and quantum optics for the last twenty years. This research field has had a very deep impact on many aspects of AMO physics, from metrology to collision physics, including also statistical physics and matter wave interferometry.
