Bose-Einstein condensation of lithium
Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) in ultra-cold magnetically-trapped $\sp7$Li vapor was experimentally observed and quantitative measurements of condensate number were made. Compared to other BEC experiments, lithium is ...
A laser diode system and its use in a laser cooling experiment
A system to control and stabilize the output of visible laser diodes was developed and used to measure the velocity distribution of lithium atoms in a laser cooling experiment. Circuitry was designed and built for controlling ...
