First published on Cosmos Magazine site, 25/9/18 An experiment with a cloud of ultracold atoms squashed into a quantum pancake has revealed never-before seen quantum effects that could lead to more efficient electronics, including high temperature superconductors. A team at Swinburne University in Australia observed a quantum anomaly in lithium-6 gas cooled to a few … Continue reading Quantum pancake reveals clues to better electronics
