RUBIDIUM-85 AND THE LOVE

March 12, 07

 


From, “Building Your Own Supernova”:

“By making a Bose-Einstein condensate in a particular isotope — rubidium-85 — and then changing the magnetic field in which the BEC is sitting, researchers can adjust the wavefunction’s self-interaction between repulsion and attraction. If the self-interaction is repulsive, all the parts of the wavefunction push each other away. If it is attractive, they all pull towards each other, like gravity. Achieving a pure BEC in rubidium-85 required the cloud of atoms to be cooled to about 3 billionths of a degree above absolute zero, the lowest temperature ever achieved.”

See!? Anything is possible if you just have a little science.

  1. Hi,

    The Bose-Einstein Condensate seems to hold a lot of promise to take the main stage of physics. I’m kind of into it myself.

    Check out these posts on mine for some other mind shattering applications of the Bose-Einstein Condensate:

    And –

    Environmental Influences of “Taming Gravity”

    for the modern considerations of any new technology.
