Josephson effect in Bose-Einstein condensates

During the last five years we have studied a number of aspects of the physics of ultracold atomic clouds trapped in double-well potentials. In particular, we have studied spinor condensates, binary mixtures, formation of correlated ground states, temperature effects, etc.


The PhD thesis of Marina Mele-Messeguer has been the driving force behing this project. Check out here a video abstract we produced for our work on binary mixtures: New Journal of Physics, 13 033012 (2011)
