New Form Of Matter: Supersolid Is Both Superfluid And Crystalline At The Same Time

By using lasers to manipulate a superfluid gas known as a Bose-Einstein condensate, the team was able to coax the condensate into a quantum phase of matter that has a rigid structure — like a solid, and can flow without viscosity, a key characteristic of a ...
