Chandra Raman's talk

Yesterday we had a talk by Chandra Raman, from Georgia Tech. He showed pictures of vortex lattices in a Bose-Einstein condensate, which he created by stirring the BEC, for example via a laser.

He also discussed their use of Bragg scattering to characterize the condensate, and also how they plugged the trap for Na BECs to counteract Majorana transitions.

Sadly, this was the last talk and lunch of the academic year...and I think it's also my last blog posting for a while, as my hit counter says that this blog has had zero hits thus far, except for a few hits coming from Harvard (i.e., me). :)

I suppose I could discuss Britney Spears in order to stimulate some discussion. :) But that's OK.
