Bose-Einstein condensation Bose-Einstein condensate
Strongly Associated with:   Bose-Einstein statistics
Notes:
Bose-Einstein condensation was predicted in 1925, but not seen in the laboratory until 1995. It is based on the indistinguishability and wave nature of particles, both of which are at the heart of quantum mechanics.
