The Experimental Setup
The experiments described in this work were performed in a new experimental setup designed and built during the PhD. I first give a brief description of the new apparatus which is necessary for the understanding of the experiments. Following, I elaborate on the various subsystems of the new setup. In particular, I describe the sequence which leads to Bose-Einstein condensation.
