Collision studies in ultracold calcium atoms — •Hannes Winter, Purbasha Halder, and Andreas Hemmerich — Universität Hamburg

We present collision studies of metastable optically trapped calcium atoms and discuss the feasibility of achieving Bose-Einstein condensation in these states by evaporative cooling methods [1]. The metastable states of alkaline earth and rare earth elements have novel elastic and inelastic scattering prop-erties [2], with important implications for applications like time metrology and lattice-based quantum computing. The atoms are prepared by an alternative method analogous to the one used to create a ground state BEC [3]. We also discuss our new setup to realize a superradiant laser [4] similar to the proposal by [5].
