Figure 1: A series of images showing a dipolar condensate as it explodes after the collapse. From left to right, the images correspond to increasing times over which the BEC is held in the trap after the atomic interactions are tuned with the Feshbach resonance (the image at the far left corresponds to a holding time of 0.1 ms; the one in the foreground to a holding time of 0.5 ms; successive images are separated by 0.1 ms). The anisotropic dipolar interaction between the atoms leads to an explosion with the same d-wave symmetry.
