Potassium 39 (K39) ultracold Bose gases provide an excellent opportunity to study few- and many-body physics. This is due to their rich Feshbach resonance spectrum, which allows for magnetically tunable interaction strength between the atoms in the gas. In our experiment we create such a Bose gas and tune a magnetic field to study it near a Feshbach resonance. Knowing this magnetic field is critical since it determines interaction strength. The complex experimental setup can benefit from improved automation and simplified data acquisition. In this thesis, I will outline my work towards realizing these goals.
