1. Bosons & Bose-Einstein Distribution

Bosons!

Q: How to distinguish one object from another?

- Think of daily life object

-Think of microscopic particles

1. Bosons & Bose-Einstein Distribution

Bosons vs Fermions

Bosons – integer spin / no Pauli exclusion

Fermions – half integer spin / Pauli exclusion

Fermions - 1 wayBosons – 10 ways

Classical?

1. Bosons & Bose-Einstein Distribution

Bose-Einstein Distribution

For N identical bosons with M available quantum states, there are

ways that the particle can be distributed.

For quantum states with different energies:

1. Bosons & Bose-Einstein Distribution

Bose-Einstein Distribution

Consider an ideal gas model for bosons,

we have

The entropy of the gas is

S=kB ln W

Thus we can apply Lagrange multipliers

Bose-Einstein Distribution

Finally, after some calculation, we get

for each energy shell and thus

Bose-Einstein Distribution

2. Bose-Einstein Condensation (BEC)

Observe the equation:

>= 0

>= 1

(always!)

2. Bose-Einstein Condensation (BEC)

Since f(E) is a distribution, it also fulfills

Suppose there is a temperature that

(we are not sure about it!)

Have a try

3. Experimental BEC

How Tc changes upon n?

To achieve BEC, one can either decrease the temperature or increase the particle density.

A temperature-density phase diagram will help a lot!


Slide13 l.jpg

3. Experimental BEC

Difficulty to achieve BEC

BEC before it is forbiddened!

Make Time BEC << Time thermal equilibrium


Slide14 l.jpg

3. Experimental BEC

So: have to do it in a hurry

- Pulsed laser beam as detector

- Magneto-Optical Trap (MOT)

Also: make thermal equilibrium time scale larger

- Choice of atoms – Rubidium 87

Still: very very cold!

- MOT cooling

- Cool by expand

Result: velocity distribution data

1600nk

200nK

400nK


Slide17 l.jpg

3. Experimental BEC

Anisotropy of the data

Due to

Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle (h~x*p)

+

Anisotropy of the space distribution

3. Experimental BEC

Other type of BEC in Experiment

  • Superfluid

    ~Helium-4 @ 2.17K

    ~only about 8% of the atoms accumulate in ground state - not a “pure” BEC.

  • Fermions

    ~extremely low temperature

    ~must “pair up” to form compound particles (like molecules or Cooper pairs) that are bosons.

  • Magnons

    ~ a BEC transmission temperature at room temperature

    ~achieved by pumping the magnons into the system and form a high density n

4. Summary

  • BEC is predicted early and achieved tens of years later, inspiring a lot of related technologies.

  • BEC in lab is very fragile. Extremely low temperature and density is required.

  • BEC can be useful in very basic physics.

  • It can also be used in ultra-sensitive measurements. (Think of laser)
