Physics funding at the German Research Foundation

The German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) is the central German organization to support basic research primarily at German universities. An important difference to other national funding organizations is that DFG works as a self-governing organization of German Science in a “response mode” by funding proposals made by scientists, but also contributing...

Fantastic plastic makes the quantum leap

A Bose-Einstein condensate is an intriguing state of matter where extensive collective coherence leads to macroscopic quantum phenomena. It has now been demonstrated using a thin plastic film at room temperature. This provides a new, simple route to experimentally study many-body quantum physics and opens the door for device applications.
