Since the mid-90s, scientists have been cooling atoms to temperatures lower than that of any other system in the known Universe. These quantum fluids are new materials in which questions from many realms of science, like quantum information and superconductivity, can be studied experimentally. Faced with the short-comings of atoms that have already been made into such a quantum fluid, we have set out to create a system with a yet untamed element of the periodic table, titanium. Come learn why, how and progress towards a topological quantum fluids of titanium.
Kayleigh Cassella joined the research group of Prof Dan Stamper-Kurn after completing her PhD this past spring.
