- The principle thrust of this research project is to observe Bose Einstein condensation (BEC) in a gas of spin-polarized atomic hydrogen. After the stabilization of hydrogen by Silvera and Walraven a decade ago, a number of straightforward attempts to Bose condense hydrogen were thwarted by the large recombination rates on the cell surfaces and in the bulk, at high densities. Currently there are several very promising approaches to BEC, and we are intensively developing some of these ideas. In addition we continue to carry out research to further develop our understanding of hydrogen interactions, as our experience has shown that knowledge of the system parameters is vital for any attempt to achieve BEC.
