Paper Abstract

We consider a binary mixture of two overlapping Bose- Einstein condensates in two different hyperfine states of 87Rb with nearly identical magnetic moments. Such a system has been simply realized through application of radio frequency and microwave radiation which drives a two-photon transition between the two states. The nearly identical magnetic moments afford a high degree of spatial overlap, permitting a variety of new experiments. We discuss some of the conditions under which the magnetic moments are identical, with particular emphasis placed on the requirements for a time-averaged orbiting potential magnetic trap.
