particles gone to wave form

particles gone to wave form

Particles such as atoms bounce around chaotically, but when ultracold, they take on wave behavior, as illustrated in this figurative artist's depiction of their behavior. The image is not part of the study done at Georgia Tech but serves to help readers visualize the particle-wave duality of matter that the study also considers. Credit: science@NASA
