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.

Nanotechnology device builds electricity from tiny pieces

A team of scientists at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and University of Cambridge has made a significant advance in using nano-devices to create accurate electrical currents. Electrical current is composed of billions and billions of tiny particles called electrons. They have developed an electron pump - a nano-device - which picks these electrons up one at a time and moves them across a barrier, creating a very well-defined electrical current.
