Indian-origin Physicist Creates Fifth State Of Matter At Home Amid Lockdown

Author: DreamPirates | Last Updated : 2020-05-27 Indian-origin Physicist Creates Fifth State Of Matter At Home Amid Lockdown

An India-origin scientist created the fifth state of matter while working from home during the coronavirus lockdown by using quantum technology. Dr Amruta Gadge, a physicist based in the UK, successfully created a Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC) at the facility of the University of Sussex while working remotely from her living room located two miles away.

Peter Krüger, Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Sussex, said in a statement that researchers are extremely excited that they can continue to conduct experiments remotely during any possible future lockdowns. The achievement can be a major breakthrough for researchers in creating a blueprint for operating quantum technology in inaccessible environments. Scientists believe that it may be the first time that BEC was created remotely in a lab that did not have one earlier.
