We report on the realization of a double-well potential for Rubidium-87 Bose-Einstein condensates. The experimental setup allows for the investigation of two different dynamical phenomena known for this system – Josephson oscillations and self-trapping. We give a detailed discussion of the experimental setup and the methods used for calibrating the relevant parameters. We compare our experimental findings with the predictions of an extended two-mode model and find quantitative agreement.
