Comment: Info on ultracold physics (Score 5, Informative) 236

"Ultracold" here refers to degenerate Fermi gases, not Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC).

Here's a layman article:
A Fermi gas of atoms
Deborah Jin
Physics World, 2002

And the original publication by the Duke group:
Observation of a Strongly Interacting Degenerate Fermi Gas of Atoms
K. M. O'Hara, S. L. Hemmer, M. E. Gehm, S. R. Granade, J. E. Thomas
Science Vol 298, p 2179 - 2182 (2002)

The devil finds work for idle circuits to do.

Working...
