[14] Finite clusters can rotate at a temperature T . ~2/I, I being the classical moment of inertia. We have observed this for τ = 5: f shows two sharp peaks for n = 4 and 9 (inner and outer rings, respectively), other cycles being absent. However, this is not a “superfluid”.

[15] Choosing larger n can make lifetimes longer, since γr ∼ 1/n3. However, then it is not possible to neglect processes where the atom is found in an excited state |r′ i 6= |ri after the spontaneous emission; S. Thwaite et al., unpublished.
