Abstract

We observe Bose-Elinstein condensation (BEC) in a dilute atomic gas cooled below 170 nK. 87Rb atoms are optically trapped and precooled loaded into a magnetic trap, and them evaporatively cooled through the BEC phase transition. We present results of quantitative studies of condensate fraction, interaction strength, and excitations of the condensate in this system.
