New ‘Twisted’ Laser Beam Can Sculpt Ultracold Atoms Into Unusual Shapes

Posted by in category: particle physics

Getting atoms to do what you want isn’t easy – but it’s at the heart of a lot of groundbreaking research in physics.

Creating and controlling the behavior of new forms of matter is of particular interest and an active area of research.

Our new study, published in Physical Review Letters, has uncovered a brand new way of sculpting ultracold atoms into different shapes using laser light.
