Bose Einstein Condensate For Oxygen 16 and Oxygen 18

  • #1

Summary:

I am interested in whether or not Bose Einstein condensates have been realized for spin zero stable oxygen isotopes.

Main Question or Discussion Point

I am interested in whether or not Bose Einstein condensates have been realized for spin zero stable oxygen isotopes and if so, the maximum density achieved for these condensates. I understand that the quantum spins of oxygen 16 and oxygen 18 are both zero so such condensates would seem to be possible. Anyone have any assistance to offer to let me know if my assertions are correct. Thanks.

Not to my knowledge. Laser cooling of oxygen is not trivial and would require lasers in the deep UV, which presents a difficulty in itself.
