BE condensate

  1. Oct 4, 2005 #1
    Can we have a photon BE condensate? Theoretically, can graviton and gluons and all other force propagators make BE condensates?

    Er... photons ARE already in a BE condensate! They are the clearest example of such a thing.

    What about other kind of elementary particle bosons?

    Why does alkali nuclei need low temperature to achieve BE condensate?

    There are already other BE condensates, even in atomic gasses. You need low temperature for these because thermal fluctuations destroy long-range coherence.
