Part Light, Part Matter: Physicists Create ‘Mixed Matter’ at Room Temperature

Posted by in category: quantum physics

Scientists from the UK used gold to trap photons with a molecule at room temperature. The experiment shows evidence of the quantum nature of light.

It’s a Trap!

A group of physicists from the UK were able to mix light and molecules at room temperature. This phenomenon is called strong coupling. It has been achieved before, but only at very low temperatures. Achieving this at room temperature makes it easier to manipulate the process and to do experiments at lower costs.
