Physicists at the University of Basel have developed a new cooling technique for mechanical quantum systems. Using an ultracold atomic gas, the vibrations of a membrane were cooled down to less than 1 degree above absolute zero. Thi...

Quantum computing? Physicists' new technique for cooling molecules may be a stepping stone to quantum computing

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

At the heart of next-generation computers may be a collection of ultracold molecules held at temperatures a mere fraction of a degree above absolute zero. By combining two traditional atomic cooling technologies, physicists have pio...

Physicists use multicolored laser light to study atoms critical to medicine

Academics / Physics : Physorg: Physics

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, c...
