Physicists Just Stuffed an Atom Full of Atoms and Created a Brand New State of Matter

A team of researchers has now created a new, exotic state of matter at cold temperatures, referred to as “Rydberg polarons.”

Two very special fields of atomic physics, which can only be studied at extreme conditions, have been combined in this research project: Bose-Einstein condensates and Rydberg atoms. A Bose-Einstein condensate is a state of matter created by atoms at ultracold temperatures, close to absolute zero. Rydberg atoms are atoms, in which one single electron is lifted into a highly excited state and orbits the nucleus at a very large distance.

You can see an illustration of this "giant atom" filled with atoms below - the blue is the electron, the nucleus is red, and within the electron's orbit are a bunch of other atoms (green).

First, a Bose-Einstein condensate was created with strontium atoms. Using a laser, energy was transferred to one of these atoms, turning it into a Rydberg atom with a huge atomic radius. The perplexing thing about this atom: the radius of the orbit, on which the electron moves around the nucleus, is much larger than the typical distance between two atoms in the condensate. Therefore the electron does not only orbit its own atomic nucleus, numerous other atoms lie inside its orbit too. Depending on the radius of the Rydberg atom and the density of the Bose-Einstein condensate, as many as 170 additional strontium atoms may be enclosed by the huge electronic orbit.

P.S. Don't expect to be building anything from these molecular Rydberg polarons( at least for now).

You thought quantum mechanics was confusing?🤔

Yoo..finally, we got the source to our sink!😉...
That's what I was trying to convince all these days...and now we have beautiful symmetry.. this for sure will be followed by breath thinking and one of the biggest unification.

finally, we will have to say that reality doesn't exist.
