    The 2001 Nobel Prize in Physics

    9 October 2001

    The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Nobel
    Prize in Physics for 2001 jointly to

    Eric A. Cornell
    JILA and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Boulder,
    Colorado, USA,

    Wolfgang Ketterle
    Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, Massachusetts,
    USA, and

    Carl E. Wieman
    JILA and University of Colorado, Boulder, Colorado, USA,

    "for the achievement of Bose-Einstein condensation in dilute gases of alkali
    atoms, and for early fundamental studies of the properties of the

    New State of Matter Revealed: Bose-Einstein Condensate

    A laser beam differs from the light from an ordinary light bulb in several ways.
    In the laser the light particles all have the same energy and oscillate together.
    To cause matter also to behave in this controlled way has long been a
    challenge for researchers. This year|APO|s Nobel Laureates have succeeded - they
    have caused atoms to "sing in unison" - thus discovering a new state of
    matter, the Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC).

    In 1924 the Indian physicist Bose made important theoretical calculations
    regarding light particles. He sent his results to Einstein who extended the
    theory to a certain type of atom. Einstein predicted that if a gas of such
    atoms were cooled to a very low temperature all the atoms would suddenly
    gather in the lowest possible energy state. The process is similar to when
    drops of liquid form from a gas, hence the term condensation.

    Seventy years were to pass before this year|APO|s Nobel Laureates, in 1995,
    succeeded in achieving this extreme state of matter. Cornell and Wieman then
    produced a pure condensate of about 2 000 rubidium atoms at 20 nK
    (nanokelvin), i.e. 0.000 000 02 degrees above absolute zero.

    Independently of the work of Cornell and Wieman, Ketterle performed
    corresponding experiments with sodium atoms. The condensates he managed
    to produce contained more atoms and could therefore be used to investigate
    the phenomenon further. Using two separate BECs which were allowed to
    expand into one another, he obtained very clear interference patterns, i.e. the
    type of pattern that forms on the surface of water when two stones are
    thrown in at the same time. This experiment showed that the condensate
    contained entirely co-ordinated atoms. Ketterle also produced a stream of
    small "BEC drops" which fell under the force of gravity. This can be
    considered as a primitive "laser beam" using matter instead of light.

    It is interesting to speculate on areas for the application of BEC. The new
    "control" of matter which this technology involves is going to bring
    revolutionary applications in such fields as precision measurement and
