Bose-Einstein Condensates in a 1D Optical Lattice

by S. Burger, F.S. Cataliotti, F. Ferlaino, F. Fort, P. Maddaloni, F. Minardi, M. Inguscio
Abstract:
We give an overview on current experiments on Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) in a one-dimensional (1D) optical lattice. We introduce measurements of ground state, tunnelling and dynamical properties as well as investigations of atom optical applications and thermodynamical properties. Measurements of the coherent atomic current in an array of Josephson junctions and the critical velocity for the breakdown of superfluid motion are discussed in detail.
