Center for Ultracold Atoms Hands-on Demos

April 20, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

At extremely low temperatures, the fundamental building blocks of the universe behave unexpectedly.

Discover this hidden world at The Center for Ultracold Atoms (CUA).

Activities include a gum-drop model Ion Trap, a 6-foot Tornado Simulator, experiments with Liquid Nitrogen to see how ultracold temperatures change everyday objects, and a station to make your own holograms.

The event will kick off with a short talk by Professor Martin Zwierlein, followed by interactive demonstrations.

Free! Drop-In.
