Unusual sound waves discovered in quantum liquids

Ordinary sound waves—small oscillations of density—can propagate through all fluids, causing the molecules in the fluid to compress at regular intervals. Now physicists have theoretically shown that in one-dimensional ...

Physicists show that superfluid light is possible

(PhysOrg.com) -- Superfluidity – the phase of matter that enables a fluid to move up the sides of its container – has been known about since the 1930s. Since then, superfluidity has become a prime example of how ...

An early universe analog built in a lab in Germany

A team of researchers at Universität Heidelberg has built an early universe analog in their laboratory using chilled potassium atoms. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the group describes their simulator and ...

Evidence of superfluidity in a dipolar supersolid

Superfluidity in liquids and gases can manifest as a reduced moment of inertia (the rotational analog of mass) under slow rotations. Non-classical rotational effects can also be considered in the elusive supersolid phases ...
