Trapping and evaporation of strontium-87 and strontium-88 mixtures
This thesis describes trapping and evaporative cooling of ultracold 87Sr and 88Sr mixtures in an optical dipole trap to produce the first Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) of 88Sr. Furthermore, this work presents thermalization ...
Transport properties of a Bose-Einstein condensate with tunable interactions in the presence of a disordered or single defect potential
Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) have proven to be remarkable systems with which to study some of the foundational models of condensed matter physics. The observation of a critical velocity for the breakdown of superfluidity ...
