Getting Rid of the Details
Ultracold Atomic Clouds
The project was funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) as part of Austria’s participation in the SFB1225: ISOQUANT.

Sketch of the quantum simulator used by Zache et al., which measures the phase correlations between two one-dimensional superfluids separated by a barrier. From the experiments, the teams determine the “irreducible vertices” (red) that fully define a quantum field theory for the so-called sine-Gordon model. ©APS/Alan Stonebraker
