Closing in on the Phenomenon of Superconductivity With a Two-dimensional Atomic Gas
Closing in on the Phenomenon of Superconductivity With a Two-dimensional Atomic Gas
Using an exotic quantum superfluid that originates in a two-dimensional atomic gas, researchers from Heidelberg University are closing in on the phenomenon of superconductivity. The team headed by Selim Jochim of the Institute for Physics is using this special gas as a model system to more easily study the largely unknown mechanism of the superfluid phase transition in 2D structures.

Ruperto Carola Receives Research Training Group to Develop Novel Particle Detectors
Research and development of novel detector technologies to identify and measure elementary particles is the topic of a new Research Training Group (RTG) that will be established at the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy of Heidelberg University. It is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). After successful evaluation by an international expert panel, the "HighRR - High Resolution and High Rate Detectors in Nuclear and Particle Physics" Research Training Group receives about 3.7 million euros over a period of four and a half years.
