Jack Harris (Professor of Physics) research is featured in Yale News (April 18, 2019), “New experiment dives into quantum physics in a liquid”.
For the first time, Yale physicists have directly observed quantum behavior in the vibrations of a liquid body.
A great deal of ongoing research is currently devoted to discovering and exploiting quantum effects in the motion of macroscopic objects made of solids and gases. This new experiment opens a potentially rich area of further study into the way quantum principles work on liquid bodies.
