If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Dimitri M Gangardt. The use of magnetic field induced Feshbach resonances to manipulate quantum degenerate atomic gases has dramatically enhanced the range and nature of possible experimental studies. Here we present details of two experiments in Durham that aim to explore the two complementary aspects of Feshbach physics. The first utilizes the change in scattering length in the vicinity of a Feshbach resonance to explore the rich behaviour of a condensate when the interactions are suddenly switched from repulsive to attractive. The second exploits the origin of the Feshbach to couple ultracold atoms into ultracold molecules with the long-term goal of creating a quantum gas of polar molecules.
