What's so 'super' about this superfluid Atomtronics is an emerging technology whereby physicists use ensembles of atoms to build analogs to electronic circuit elements. Modern electronics relies on utilizing the charge properties of the electron. Using lasers and magnetic fields, atomic systems can be engineered to have behavior analogous to that of electrons, making them an exciting platform for studying and generating alternatives to charge-based electronics. Using a superfluid...

[ Watch the Video: Getting Cold In Space ] redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The coldest spot in the universe will soon be aboard the International Space Station (ISS), as NASA researchers are developing a new device that will allow them to study matter at temperatures nearing absolute zero, the US space agency has announced. At absolute zero, all of the thermal activity of atoms theoretically halts and the ordinary concepts pertaining to the states of matter...

The UPV/EHU physicist Eneko Malatsetxebarria has explored, on a theoretical level, some quantum effects that take place in atoms at a very low temperature. Firstly, he has discovered that boson-type atoms and fermion-type ones can be mixed in a specific way. So he has made the necessary conditions for carrying out these experiments available to experimental physicists. Secondly, he has deduced how fermions would influence bosons in this case. The experiments carried out on cold atoms are...

They are the coldest objects in the Universe and are so fragile that even a single photon can heat and destroy them. Known as Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) and consisting of just a cluster of atoms, it has up until now been impossible to measure and control these remarkable forms of matter simultaneously. In a new study published today, 28 November, in the Institute of Physics and German Physical Society's New Journal of Physics, a group of researchers from the UK and Australia have...

Science Community now has entire system available to help drive applications into BEC and Ultracold Atoms. Boulder, CO (PRWEB) September 05, 2013 Notoriously difficult, expensive and time consuming to set up, experiments to create Bose-Einstein Condensates (atoms cooled to temperatures very close to Absolute Zero) have become vastly easier yet much smaller in size. When Eric Cornell and Carl Wieman first demonstrated the existence of as Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC), a form of ultracold...

Quantum Inverted Pendulum
2013-08-28 08:18:43

Georgia Institute of Technology A simple pendulum has two equilibrium points: hanging in the "down" position and perfectly inverted in the "up" position. While the "down" position is a stable equilibrium, the inverted position is definitely not stable. Any infinitesimal deviation from perfectly inverted is enough to cause the pendulum to eventually swing down. It has been known for more than 100 years, though, that an inverted pendulum can be stabilized by vibrating the pivot point....
