Summary

Different experiments with Bose-Einstein rubidium condensates are presented in order to evidence the impact of condensate samples for the research in quantum optics and quantum physics. Measurements of the condensate free expansion, of the geometric forces acting on the condensate trapped into a time-orbiting-potential triaxial magnetic trap, of the acceleration of the condensate through a one-dimensional, off-resonant optical lattices and finally of the photoionization of the rubidium atoms composing the condensate are presented.
