Cooling close to absolute zero temperature: a recipe for discoveries
Wolfgang Ketterle, 2001 Nobel Laureate
Why do physicists freeze matter to extremely low temperatures? Why is it worthwhile to cool to temperatures which are a billion times lower than that of interstellar space? In this talk, I will experimentally demonstrate phenomena at low temperature and discuss new forms of matter. Of special interest are superfluids which can flow without dissipation. Recently, we have observed a supersolid which is gaseous, liquid and solid at the same time.
