The first achievement of a pure Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC) in 1995 was the first time a pure quantum mechanical state of matter was realised. This new ability to control matter sparked the revolution in ultracold physics that we see today with applications ranging from time standards to quantum simulation to quantum information and sensing. But 25 years on, these states remain fleeting. The aim of Shayne Bennetts' research is to contribute to achieving a steady-state BEC, and with it, a steady-state matter-wave laser.
