Cesium atoms shaken, not stirred, to create elusive excitation in superfluid

Scientists discovered in 1937 that liquid helium-4, when chilled to extremely low temperatures, became a superfluid that could leak through glass, overflow its containers, or eternally gush like a fountain. Future Nobel laureate Lev Landau came along in 1941, predicting … Continue reading

Ultracold Experiments Heat Up Quantum Research

University of Chicago physicists have experimentally demonstrated, for the first time, that atoms chilled to temperatures near absolute zero may behave like seemingly unrelated natural systems of vastly different scales, offering potential insights into links between the atomic realm and … Continue reading
