Abstract

The transition temperature of a weakly interacting F = 1 spinor Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) formed in an optical trap was discussed. The shift of the transitions temperatures due to finite-size effects and two-body interactions was obtained. It was found that the condensation occurred at a temperature of about 177 nK. The analytical results for the shift of the transition temperature in the presence of a weak magnetic field were also reported.
