From three to four: a quantum leap in few-body physics

In 2007 and 2008 two groups of theoretical physicists predicted the existence of universal four-body states that are closely tied to Efimov trimer states. Now, a team of scientists of the Institute for Experimental Physics of the University of Innsbruck, Austria, has proven these states experimentally in an ultracold gas of cesium atoms.
