Abstract
Experiments in Bose-Einstein condensation provide an unusually direct view of the working quantum wave mechanics. We make use of two internal states of Rb-87 to engineer desired wavefunction patterns, and with the use of simple optical imaging, we characterize the results of these efforts.
