We study Bose-Einstein condensates outside of their comfort zone, either with confinement too tight, or interactions too strong, or with insufficient thermal equilibration. Particular interests are phonon correlations and supersonic flow. Additionally, through the use of the strong internal electric fields in molecules, we are looking for evidence for the electron’s electric dipole moment.
