Wave matter

Wave matter

An artist's depiction of what a group of atoms looks like when they merge to a wave-like state. This occurs under ultra-cooling that drops atoms' temperature to near absolute zero, the coldest possible temperature in the universe. This is not an image of something done in this Georgia Tech study but is intended to help readers picture the particle-wave duality the study considers along with other factors.
