What are the properties of Bose-Einstein condensate?

What do you think?

Hi, Yancee.  Responses seem to be slow coming in, perhaps not the most encouraging reception for a guest, but I'm sure someone out there knows the answer to your question and will come up with it soon.  In the meantime, have you looked at the Wikipedia article?

Slow? How about non-existent?

The propertied of a Bose-einstein condensate is one where the particles are weakly interacting. It's basically a gas of bosons (particles with integer spin) which has been cooled to very low temperatures.

The important feature of a Bose-Einstein condensate is that the atoms or molecules involved in the condensate are all at exactly the same energy, indistinguishable from each other and the condensate acts just like a single entity, like a drop of water.  In a quantum mechanical sense all the wave functions become merged and coherent and provided that you treat it very gently it stays together.
