The main objective of the project is the generation of Rubidium and Potassium Bose-Einstein Condensates (BECs) and performing dual-species atom-interferometry aboard a sounding rocket. In total 3 sounding rockets should be launched in the QUANTUS III and QUANTUS IV – MAIUS projects.mehr...

BECCAL (Bose Einstein Condensates & Cold Atom Lab) will be a multi-user facility capable of performing experiments with cold atoms and Bose Einstein Condensates aboard the International Space Station (ISS). BECCAL is developed in a bilateral cooperation between the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). It is aiming for a launch in 2024. The facility shall be open to experiment proposals of American and German scientist.mehr...
