Measuring the Intersection of Two Worlds

Photo of researchers kneeling behind a dilution refrigerator equipped for microwave measurements.

Dartmouth College professors Alex Rimberg (left) and Miles Blencowe have demonstrated quantum mechanical effects acting on the macroscopic world.

Here they are shown kneeling behind a dilution refrigerator equipped for microwave measurements. A similar apparatus was used to cool some of the samples to ultra-low temperatures and probe their electromechanical properties.
