In science:

At low enough temperatures, Bose-Einstein condensation of pairs of atoms was observed through the typical bimodal distribution of the molecular profiles (see Fig. 1) (Greiner, Regal and Jin, 2003; Jochim et al. 2003; Zwierlein et al., 2003; Bourdel et al., 2004; Partridge et al., 2005).
Theory of ultracold Fermi gases
Condensation of pairs was later measured also on the fermionic side of the resonance (Regal, Greiner and Jin, 2004b; Zwierlein et al., 2004).
Theory of ultracold Fermi gases
Experiments on atom losses both in potassium (Regal, Greiner and Jin, 2004a) and in lithium (Bourdel et al., 2004) close to the Feshbach resonance give relaxation rate constants αdd ∝ a−s with values of the exponent s in reasonable agreement with theory.
Theory of ultracold Fermi gases
The momentum distribution has been measured along the crossover in a series of studies (Regal et al., 2005; Chen et al., 2006 and Tarruell et al., 2007).
Theory of ultracold Fermi gases
The symbols correspond to the experimental results from Regal et al. (2005) and the lines to the mean-field results based on Eq. (80) for the same values of the interaction parameter 1/k0 F a.
