A $^{23}$Na and $^{87}$Rb double Bose-Einstein condensate with tunable

Dezhi Xiong, Xiaoke Li, Fudong Wang, Dajun Wang
We have realized a dual-species Bose-Einstein condensate of $^{23}$Na and $^{87}$Rb atoms and observed their immiscibility. Because of the favorite background intra- and inter-species scattering lengths, evaporative cooling and sympathetic cooling are efficient without the need for fine controlling of the interactions. Our system thus provides a clean platform for studying quantum fluid mixtures with tunable inter-species interactions. We have also demonstrated the interaction tuning with a inter-species Feshbach resonance by investigating the elastic collisions near zero crossing of the Na-Rb scattering length.
