    Does Bose Einsteine Condesate violate the Pauli Exclusion Principle?

    No, because Bosons are not under it. Fermions are however, and they cannot form a BEC.

    Fermions can form superfluids and superconductors.
    The superconducting ground state is formed by a collection of Cooper pairs that are again bosonic. So you could say that it is sort of a BEC but the mechanism is very different.

    Ahh, of course. Thanks for refreshing my memory.
