BOSE-EINSTEIN CONDENSATE

Asked by  | 17th Dec, 2012, 10:11: PM

Expert Answer:

Bose-Einstein condensation is a phenomenon that occurs at low temperatures in systems consisting of large numbers of bosons whose total number is conserved in collisions. Used in the explanation of superfluidity, this phenomenon enables a significant fraction of the particles to occupy a single quantum state. No analogous phenomenon occurs for two or more fermions, which are prohibited by the Pauli exclusion principle from occupying the same quantum state.
