A quantum state of matter.

Jones, Matthew (2013) 'A quantum state of matter.', International innovation., 2013 . pp. 39-41.


AS THEORETICAL AND experimental physicists probe deeper into the quantum nature of reality, technological advances made in recent years have allowed for a consistent narrowing of the gap between the two approaches. The development and refinement of laser cooling and trapping has expanded the possibilities of manipulating matter at an atomic level. At the same time, the ability to observe and control hitherto theoretical states of matter is fostering an increasing interest in the nature and behaviour of large-scale quantum systems – in particular, supersolids – and the mysteries that surround high temperature (high-T) superconductivity.
