Ultracold UB

The project Ultracold UB starts as a collaborative project intended to be carried out by last year undergraduate students supervised by professors and researchers. The idea is to build a user friendly software to introduce high-school students and undergrads into the fields of quantum mechanics, ultracold atomic physics, Bose-Einstein condensates and non-linear solitons.

The main objectives of the project are manifold:

  • Foster cooperation among last year undergraduate students
  • Bring last year students closer to the research carried out in our department
  • Produce a useful tool for Science popularisation at high school level

Main structure of the project

The package will contain initially three modules.

  • Quantum mechanics module. To exemplify some basic aspects of quantum mechanics
  • Bright solitons module. Allows the user to play with Bright solitons pinched on a 1D Bose-Einstein condensate
  • Dark solitons module. Allows the user to play with a dark soliton pinched on a 1D Bose-Einstein condensate
