New "refrigerator" super-cools molecules to nanokelvin temperatures

New "refrigerator" super-cools molecules to nanokelvin temperatures Boston MA (SPX) Apr 09, 2020
For years, scientists have looked for ways to cool molecules down to ultracold temperatures, at which point the molecules should slow to a crawl, allowing scientists to precisely control their quantum behavior. This could enable researchers to use molecules as complex bits for quantum computing, tuning individual molecules like tiny knobs to carry out multiple streams of calculations at a time.
