Title: Properties of quasi-two-dimensional condensates in highly anisotropic traps

Abstract

We theoretically investigate some of the observable properties of quasi-two-dimensional condensates. Using a variational model based on a Gaussian-parabolic trial wave function we calculate chemical potential, condensate size in time-of-flight, release energy, and collective excitation spectrum for varying trap geometries and atom numbers and find good agreement with recent published experimental results.
