First BEC 7 Weeks after Move!

22 Oct '09 - Following our move to Munich the Single Atoms team at MPQ has made our first Munich Bose-Einstein Condensate (only 7 weeks after the move). 

Sep '09. The move from Mainz to Munich is completed and all experiments have arrived at their new homes. The lab renovations are also almost complete and we can begin to setup the experiments again, soon.

Check out some photos from the move here!
