Leaders in the field of ultracold molecule research from Columbia and Harvard universities are teaming up to propel understanding of the quantum mechanics of chemical reactions. The partnership will result in the development of new, more precise techniques that will expand the field of ultracold chemistry...
Researchers say they are close to simulating high-temperature superconductivity using a lattice of ultracold atoms, a step toward explaining this perfectly conducting state...
Phase transitions occur when a substance changes from a solid, liquid or gaseous state to a different stateā€”like ice melting or vapor condensing. During these phase transitions, there is a point at which the system can display properties of both states of matter simultaneously. A similar effect occurs when normal metals transition into superconductors...
