The dynamics of collapsing Bose-Einstein condensates.
This project aims to study the behavior of a cloud of Rubidium-85 atoms under an attractive interaction potential when used to create a Bose-Einstein condensate. Efforts to describe the dynamics of an attractive condensate using only the Gross-Pitaevskii equation have been unable to describe all of the features of such a system, and so the mathematical approach used is a perturbative method of corrections to the Gross-Pitaevskii equation. A system of analytical equations to describe a...[Show more]
