Researchers at Columbia University and the University of California San Diego have introduced a “multi-messenger” approach to quantum physics that signifies a technological leap in how scientists can explore quantum materials.
Columbia researchers suggest radiation that lights the densest objects in our universe is powered by the interplay of turbulence and reconnection of super-strong magnetic fields.
The research team will execute a project aimed at extending the excited state lifetime of atoms, allowing for new technological innovation and advancing the field of quantum science.
The scientists will develop an experimental facility that will open up the field of ultracold chemistry to a much wider array of atomic and molecular species and reactions.
Columbia scientists have developed a material that can drive mechanical systems; it has potential applications for opening windows in humidity and allowing fabric to evaporate sweat.
