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.

Researchers discover roots of superfluorescent bursts from quantum wells

Spontaneous bursts of light from a solid block illuminate the unusual way interacting quantum particles behave when they are driven far from equilibrium. The discovery by scientists of a way to trigger these flashes may lead to new telecommunications equipment and other devices that transmit signals at picosecond speeds.
