Microwaves direct the interplay of waltzing molecules

A team of researchers at MPQ has for the first time observed evidence of a phenomenon that had previously only been suspected in theory: when ultracold polar molecules collide exotic bound states can arise. An experiment now indicates that this effect is indeed possible. For their investigations, the researchers used a specifically shaped microwave field with which they... more

Quantum simulator enables first microscopic observation of charge carriers pairing

Using a quantum simulator, researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ) have observed pairs of charge carriers that may be responsible for the resistance-free transport of electric current in high-temperature superconductors. So far, the exact physical mechanisms in these complex materials are still largely unknown. Theories assume that... more
