Latest Efimov State Stories
A Kansas State University-led quantum mechanics study has discovered a new bound state in atoms that may help scientists better understand matter and its composition.
A novel type of inter-particle binding is forming the basis for an intriguing kind of ultracold quantum chemistry.
In 2007 and 2008 two groups of theoretical physicists (Hammer and Platter, and von Stecher, D'Incao, and Greene) predicted the existence of universal four-body states that are closely tied to Efimov trimer states.
