Experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino was elected Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) in September. With the Fellowship, the members of the Society honor outstanding scientific achievements of their colleagues. The outstanding work of the physicist was just recently honored with the Junior BEC Award in Spain.
In a joint work from the RARE and ERBIUM team as well as our theory collaborator from IQOQI, Rick van Bijnen, we have observed hallmarks of supersolidity in dipolar quantum gases of Erbium and Dysprosium. Our work is highlighted in a Viewpoint article in Physics by T. Donner.
