Hey guys,

So I have to make a presentation on this topic. Does anyone of you know of any recent applications of this phenomenon or helpful introductory paper/article? I'm doing my own independent research too but thought that you guys might know of a very helpful resource/idea that I can look into. Anything else would be appreciated too!

Thanks,

If you have to do a general presentation on Bose-Einstein condensates, by reading wikipedia or some book would be enough I'd say. But now that you mention applications; last month, a research group of Bonn University, here in Germany, made a remarkable discovery on this topic. They made a Bose-Einstein condensate out of photons, which was previously thought to be quite 'improbable' since all the type of bosons used before for this kind of experiments were not truly bosons (e.g. He-4 etc.)
So, it wouldn't surprise me if next year's Nobel laureates (or at least nominated to the Nobel's) are Martin Weitz et al.

For more information on this issue, you could check this site:

Or, for a more technical article, the one published on Nature(you may need the 'text access' provided by your university to read the article):
