Blair Blakie, Danny Baillie, Niels Kjærgaard, James Croft form Otago's Physics Department and their international collaborators have been awarded 2019 Marsden funding for the projects "Binary magnetic gas - the next generation quantum-liquid" and "Reactive Cold Collisions in Steerable Optical Tweezers", respectively. The three-year projects are together valued at nearly $2M.
Blair, Danny and their team will investigate gas mixtures of two magnetic fluids to see if an elusive supersolid state of matter results.
Niels, James and their team will measure elementary chemical reaction rates with unprecedented resolution.

Congratulations Blair, Danny, Niels and James!
