Welcome to the web page of the MT BEC Group at the National Laboratory FAMO, Toruń, Poland.

The goal of our research is to study fundamental properties of ultra-cold gases and the Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC)

Bose-Einstein condensation is a form of quantum degeneracy which occurs when the phase-space density in the investigated system reaches unity. This requires substantial increasing of the atomic de Broglie wavelength by reducing atomic velocities, i.e., cooling, and reducing their mean distances, i.e., compression, while avoiding strong atom-atom interaction. Typical approach to reach this objective is
employment of the laser cooling together with magneto-optical and magnetic trapping techniques.

Our group was the first (and so far the only) group in Poland to achieve BEC. It consists of 5 x 105  87Rb atoms.
