Abstract

This project focused on learning and reproducing aspects of BECs. This was accomplished through background research, calculating its density of energy states when inside a parabolic trap, finding the relationship for the critical BEC temperature for BEC inside a parabolic trap, looking in depth into the paper "Quantum Phase of a Bose-Einstein Condensate with an Arbitrary Number of Atoms" [1], performing MATLAB simulations using the paper's interference phase building method, and evaluating some simulation results.
