What you have heard about Bose-Einstein condensation may makes it sound strange. But what is it really, and how did someone think of it?
Part of the excellent Physics 2000 site, this page looks at Bose-Einstein condensation theory.
A simple experiment to demonstrate the effects of pressure and how gases work.
Detailed explanation of BEC. Part of a larger site which includes many definitions and links.
Applets demonstrating Interference Experiments and Bose-Einstein-Condensation from the physics 2000 website
It took 70 years to realise Einstein's concept of Bose-Einstein condensation in a gas. It was first accomplished by Eric Cornell and Carl Wieman in 1995. They did it by cooling atoms to a much lower ...
An article explaining how condensation makes cold drinks warm up faster.
An experiment from our Physics To Go series about condensation. All you need is a plastic bottle with cap, water and a match.
A Marvin and Milo activity about condensation. All you need is a pint glass, small bowl, hot water, ice and aerosol spray (eg deodorant).
The Nobel Prize for Physics in 2001 was awarded to Eric A. Cornell, Wolfgang Ketterle and Carl E. Wieman for the achievement of Bose-Einstein condensation in dilute gases of alkali atoms.
