The Physics magazine of the American Physical Society (APS) has named the discovery of supersolidity in ultracold quantum gases as one of the top ten highlights of 2019. The research group led by Francesca Ferlaino has for the first time obtained evidence of supersolidity in erbium and dysprosium gases. Similar experiments were conducted in Pisa and Stuttgart.
Together with an international Consortium of six other research groups Francesca Ferlaino in collaboration with Peter Zoller successfully applied for funding of the project “MAQS” – Magnetic-Atom Quantum Simulator.
