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 ..
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. ..
Recently, the Cold Atom Laboratory team announced that they have succeeded in producing a Bose-Einstein condensate at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. This is being touted as a key breakthrough for the CAL which shall debut on space station in late 2016. This backgrounder discusses the basics of CAL. What is Cold Atom Laboratory? The Cold ..
