Finally, physicists have measured a theoretically long molecule made of light and matter

Physicists have just discovered light acting on the “glue” part between atoms, in a kind of unbound molecule. “For the first time we have succeeded in polarizing several atoms together in a controlled manner, creating a measurable attractive force between them,” Says University of Innsbruck physicist Matthias Sonneleitner. Atoms are linked to form molecules in … Read more
