Teaching matter waves new tricks: Making magnets with ultra cold atoms

A novel approach to understand magnets was taken by a team of scientists. In a joint experimental and theoretical effort, quantum matter waves made of Rubidium atoms were controlled in such a way that they mimic magnets. Under these well-defined conditions, these artificially created magnets can be studied with clarity, and can give a fresh perspective on long-standing riddles.
