Forscher entwickeln neue Methode des Kühlens mit Lichtwellen

Dass Licht entgegen unserer Intuition nicht immer mit Wärme gleichzusetzen ist, macht sich die Quantenphysik bei der Erforschung von Atomen und deren Eigenschaften zunutze. Der Arbeitsgruppe Atomoptik am Institut für Laserphysik der Universität Hamburg ist es nun gelungen, mit Licht Gas-Atome so stark herunter zu kühlen, dass sie sich zu einer Materiewelle zusammenschliessen.
