Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Using a method proposed by Williams and Holland, an attempt was made to prepare vortices, macroscopic quantum states with quantized angular momentum in trapped BEC of 87Rb. A coupling field allows interconversion between two-component condensates.
