Free expansion of a Bose-Einstein condensate from an Ioffe-Pritchard magnetic trap

Abstract:
The free expansion of a Bose-Einstein condensate of about 105 rubidium-87 atoms released from an Ioffe-Pritchard magnetic trap is investigated experimentally. The expansion dynamics depend only on the trap frequencies, which are determined independently. The data are in good agreement with the expected expansion of a condensate, and are clearly distinct from the behaviour of a classical gas in the hydrodynamic regime. © Springer-Verlag 1998.
