Two approaches to mixtures of degenerate gases in one dimension
Philip Wicke - Feb 04 2008
Initiated by the first realization of Bose-Einstein
condensation (BEC), mixtures of dilute quantum gases are now a field of
growing interest. These can either consist of different species e.g.
fermions and bosons or a single species with a spin degree of freedom.
While considerable work has been done on such systems in 3D, little is
known for the 1D case, which is predicted to display fundamentally
In my talk I will present two experiments. One focuses on studies of
coherence and dynamics of a spin mixture of rubidium. For the other
experiment, aiming at the creation a Bose-Fermi mixture of rubidium and
potassium, the present state of the design will be presented.
