  • Tiny quantum tornadoes observed in ultracold gases of fermionic atoms provide definitive evidence of superfluidity, and open up new vistas in the modelling of quantum many-body systems.Fermionic superfluidityA clear signature for superfluidity — the frictionless flow seen in some liquids at temperatures close to absolute zero — is the formation of a lattice of quantum vortices in a rotating system. This ‘smoking gun’ has been observed for the first time in an ultracold gas of lithium-6 atoms… CONTINUE READING
