Studying such effects holds enormous promise for the development of such technologies as ultrasensitive microscopes and quantum computation.

A Stanford team announced last week that it has created the world’s first dipolar quantum fermionic gas, “an entirely new form of quantum matter,” which  represents a major step toward understanding the behavior of particles.
