BEC coupled to mechanical oscillator


Ultracold gas offers new way of probing tiny vibrations

Physicists in Germany and France (including AQUTE members Theodor W. Hänsch, Jakob Reichel, and Philipp Treutlein) have coupled a Bose–Einstein condensate (BEC) of ultracold atoms to the vibrations of a mechanical oscillator for the first time.
