Physicists create the first quasiparticle Bose-Einstein condensate – the mysterious “fifth state” of matter

Abstract Physics Particle Motion Concept

For the first time, researchers have created a Bose-Einstein capacitor made of quasiparticles. (Abstract artist concept.) Physicists have created the first Bose-Einstein condensate – the mysterious “fifth state” of matter – made of quasiparticles. These are entities that are not considered elementary particles, although they can still possess properties of elementary particles such as charge … Read more
