Rydberg Polarons

An international team of physicists have successfully created a giant atom and filled it with ordinary atoms, creating a new state of matter termed Rydberg polarons. The atoms are held together by a weak bond. They are created at very cold temperatures. This weakly bound state of matter is an exciting new possibility of investigating ..

Gravitational Lensing

Normal lenses such as the ones used in a magnifying glass or a pair of spectacles bends the light rays that pass through them by refraction and focuses the light somewhere (such as in your eye). Gravitational lensing is among the first evidences of Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity – simply put, mass bends light. The gravitational field of a massive ..

Rydberg Polarons

An international team of physicists have successfully created a “giant atom” and filled it with ordinary atoms, creating a new state of matter termed “Rydberg polarons”. These atoms are held together by a weak bond and is created at very cold temperatures. It uses ideas from two different fields: Bose Einstein Condensation and Rydberg atoms. ..
