Finite temperature Bose-Einstein condensed gas

i.e., where co-exist degenerate atoms and classical, non-condensed atoms. By observing theirs interactions one can see both classical and quantum mechanics.


New types of optical lattices

Optical lattices are the instruments of great importance in many fields of atomic physics like manipulating of neutral particles, quantum computing, etc. The common method of getting a periodic optical lattice is to use the interference of two or more laser beams which form an array of periodic light-shift potentials.

We developed a completely new method of creating an optical lattice of either non-degenerate cold atoms or Bose-Einstein condensates. We can easily tune the lattice constant, and in addition, the lattice can be non-periodic.
