Quantum mechanical measurements in ultracold gas experiments require many repetitions for good statistics and therefore short cycle times. The production time of a BEC can be improved in many ways. Increasing, for instance, loading rates in the magneto-optical trap (MOT) or the transfer efficiency from the MOT to the optical dipole trap by adjusting laser detunings, intensities or more complex parameters such as the shape of the evaporation ramp.
In order to automatize the optimization process, we implement an evolutionary algorithm. The basic working principle, the survival of the fittest, is enhanced by differential evolution. The algorithm is designed to improve any measurable feedback with a given set of parameters. By analyzing the data obtained, knowledge about constraints of the experimental setup and significance of the parameters is gained as well as a set of optimal values for the creation of a BEC.
