Prof Blair Blakie and Dr Danny Baillie interviewed

Friday, 10 March 2017

On 8 March Professor Blair Blakie and Dr Danny Baillie explained their theory about an ultra cold gas droplet, which holds itself together in the absence of a container, much like a liquid droplet does, despite the gas droplet being about a billion times lower density than typical liquids. Along the way, as the droplet forms, some atoms are shed and escape, and the droplet is excited into a complex breathing like oscillation. Their theory has been confirmed by experiments in Germany. Check out this link and watch a cool movie of this breather mode of the droplet.

Congratulations Blair and Danny!
