Abstract

Ground state atomic interactions are important to the physics of the gaseous Bose-Einstein condensate (BOC), in particular, the magnitude and sign of the scattering length determine the stability and the properties of the BEC. The Rb triplet scattering length was determined and the interactions that involves mixed singlet and triplet are important to Rb double condensate. Single-photon photoassociation experiments in ultracold Rb determined triplet parameters. Photoassociation is a method of spectroscopy based on optical transitions induced by probe laser on pairs of colliding atoms. A double resonance experiment that directly determines the highest Rb ground bound state transitions including both triplet and singlet character is presented.
