Quantum Hall effect in 4D

Quantum Hall effect in 4D

Researchers from the Kastler Brossel Laboratory (LKB) have created a system of cold dysprosium atoms whose spatial dynamics are correlated with their internal spin state. By interpreting these discrete internal degrees of freedom as fictitious lattice sites aligned...
Cold-atom elevator

Cold-atom elevator

Cold-atom elevator Published in Physical Review Letters, researchers from LKB and their colleagues have developed an ‘elevator’ for atoms, to connect quantum simulators to an atomic reservoir, paving the way for creating exotic quantum states and studying their...

Universal Casimir attraction between filaments at the cell level

Universal Casimir attraction between filaments at the cell level Numerical simulations reveal that long-range interaction between objects in an ionic fluid, via electromagnetic field fluctuations, plays an important role for filamentary objects, with implications for...
