UCLA physicists demonstrate method to study atoms critical to medicine

(University of California - Los Angeles) UCLA physicists have shown that shining multicolored laser light on rubidium atoms causes them to lose energy and cool to nearly absolute zero. This result suggests that atoms fundamental to chemistry, such as hydrogen and carbon, can also be cooled using similar lasers, an outcome that would allow researchers to study the details of chemical reactions involved in medicine.
