Simulating superconducting materials with ultracold atoms
Houston TX (SPX) Feb 24, 2015
Using ultracold atoms as a stand-in for electrons, a Rice University-based team of physicists has simulated superconducting materials and made headway on a problem that's vexed physicists for nearly three decades. The research was carried out by an international team of experimental and theoretical physicists and appears online this week in the journal Nature. Team leader Randy Hulet, an experimental physicist at Rice, said the work could open up a new realm of unexplored science. Nearly 30 ... read more
