In summary, the conversation discusses the concept of Bose condensate and its limitations in penetrating ceramic and being affected by iron fillings. The source of this information is a movie called "Spectral," but the validity of this information is questioned as it is science fiction and not based on real science. The participants suggest finding a more reliable source to discuss this topic further.

Why is bose condensate repulsive to iron fillings and can't penetrate ceramic?

Before determining why something is true we should determine if it is true. Where did you read this?
  • #3
Just saw it in a movie "Spectral" where they created weaponry made of bose condensate but it can't penetrate ceramic and can be disturbed by iron fillings. I'm just asking how iron fillings and ceramic can affect bose condensate in the real world...

That's science fiction, not science. If you can find a serious source on which the discussion can be based, PM me or any mentor and we can reopen this thread.

What is Bose Condensate?

Bose Condensate is a state of matter that occurs at extremely low temperatures when a large number of bosons, particles with integer spin, occupy the same quantum state. It was first predicted by Satyendra Nath Bose and Albert Einstein in the 1920s.

What is the repulsive nature of Bose Condensate?

In Bose Condensate, the particles are repelled from each other due to a phenomenon called Bose-Einstein repulsion. This repulsive force arises from the Pauli exclusion principle, which states that two identical fermions cannot occupy the same quantum state. As bosons are not subject to this principle, they can occupy the same state and create a repulsive force.

What is the inability of Bose Condensate to penetrate ceramic?

One of the unique properties of Bose Condensate is its inability to penetrate solid materials like ceramic. This is because the particles in the condensate are in a coherent state and behave like a single wave. As a result, they cannot pass through the lattice structure of the ceramic material.

What are the practical applications of Bose Condensate?

Bose Condensate has many potential applications in fields such as quantum computing, superconductivity, and atom optics. It can also be used to study fundamental physics principles and to create new types of matter. Additionally, Bose Condensate has been used in precision measurements and as a tool for studying the behavior of atoms at very low temperatures.

How is Bose Condensate created in the laboratory?

To create Bose Condensate, scientists use a process called evaporative cooling, where a cloud of atoms is cooled to extremely low temperatures using lasers and magnetic fields. As the temperature drops, the atoms start to behave like a single wave and form a Bose Condensate. This process requires specialized equipment and techniques and can only be achieved in controlled laboratory settings.
