Quantum tornado provides gateway to understanding black holes

Scientists have for the first time created a giant quantum vortex to mimic a black hole in superfluid helium that has allowed them to see in greater detail how analog black holes behave and interact with their surroundings.

Creating vortices in a superfluid made of light

By using a special combination of laser beams as a very fast stirrer, RIKEN physicists have created multiple vortices in a quantum photonic system and tracked their evolution. This system could be used to explore exotic new ...

What a '2D' quantum superfluid feels like to the touch

Researchers from Lancaster University in the UK have discovered how superfluid helium 3He would feel if you could put your hand into it. Dr. Samuli Autti is the lead author of the research published in Nature Communications.

Dynamics of molecular rotors in bulk superfluid helium

Molecules immersed in liquid helium can probe superfluidity since their electronic, vibrational and rotational dynamics can provide valuable cues about the superfluid at the nanoscale. In a new report in Science Advances, ...
