Potassium BEC

  • 2D Bose-Einstein condensate of Potassium-39
  • Tunable interactions and configurable density
  • Quantum simulation and non-equilibrium dynamics

The BECK experiment is a 2D Bose-Einstein condensate of potassium-39. Our experiment features tunable interactions between atoms, as well as a configurable background density distribution of the condensate. The superb control over experimental parameters enables us to study many-body quantum dynamics far from equilibrium. We also quantum simulate analogous physical systems that are difficult to investigate experimentally, such as the dynamics of the early universe.

Your project at our experiment could include:

  •  BECs and quantum dynamics
  • Optics
  • Electronics
  • Programming

No prior lab experience is necessary!
