Repulsive atoms in quantum gas

It was not thought to be possible, but now it has happened. A group of physicists has managed to get an ultracold gas consisting of lithium and potassium atoms to form a completely new quantum state in which the atoms repulse each other as strongly as is allowed by quantum mechanics.

Light in slow motion

How long does it take an electron to form a photon? The answer would normally be: so short a time that it cannot be measured. However, the international CERN team responsible for experiment NA63 – mainly staffed by physicists from Aarhus University – has now succeeded in dragging out the process, thereby making it measurable.

Einstein’s “spooky action” improves precision measurements

Entangled atoms for interferometry. Atoms, the building blocks of nature, can be used as extremely precise measurement devices. Since the 1960s, for example, our daily time has been defined by the internal oscillation frequency of the cesium atom, and realised by so-called atomic clocks. This internal oscillation frequency has to be converted to…
