LiveAtom is a modeling and design tool for physicists and engineers working with cold atoms and Bose-Einstein Condensates.

More About this project

Boulder Labs worked with the University of Colorado to develop a three-dimensional computer-aided design and modeling tool to address the needs of researchers in the field of atomic physics. The resulting product, LiveAtom, is currently being used by several universities and government laboratories to assist with their research.

Since the creation of the Bose-Einstein condensate in 1995, physicists have been performing increasingly sophisticated experiments with cold and ultra-cold atoms. One of the major challenges with these experiments is the absence of a standard tool to assist with experimental design or atomic modeling; until now, each research group or laboratory had to create their own tools.

Boulder Labs' CAD software addresses this challenge. The tool is fast, intuitive and easy to use, yet it performs sophisticated physical calculations and provides advanced 3D-visualization of the results.
