The research was performed at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory High B/T Facility, home of the Microkelvin lab, where experiments can be conducted in near-absolute zero temperature to slow particles down and catch them in the quantum act. Their findings literally rewrote the rule for predicting the conditions under which the transition between the two quantum states would occur. Full Story

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2017, its budget is $7.5 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 48,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
