Quantum Vortices Inside Superfluid Helium Nanodroplets Mapped

XBD201407-00855.TIFScientists have, for the first time, characterized so-called quantum vortices that swirl within tiny droplets of liquid helium. The research confirms that helium nanodroplets are in fact the smallest possible superfluidic objects and opens new avenues for studying quantum rotation. More>
