    Bose-Einstein condensates are pure quantum systems which can be precisely controlled and they have now been used to investigate many quantum phenomena, including cold collisions, atom optics, atom lasers, superfluidity, quantised vortices, Josephson junctions and quantum phase transitions. They have also been used to cool gases of fermionic atoms to quantum degeneracy.
