Laboratory of Cold Atoms Near Surfaces


New article in European Journal of Physics

Our new article entitled The parametric resonance – from LEGO Mindstorms to cold atoms (Tomasz Kawalec, Aleksandra Sierant) will appear soon in European Journal of Physics. We show a method to use LEGO Mindstorms sets to present and investigate a parametric resonance for a pendulum with a modulated length. We also show a simple wireless sensor of rotation, angular velocity and acceleration – very useful for an analysis of a pendulum movement.

Full version of the article is available here, along with supplementary material – movies and programs.
