Laser-Free Method of Ion Cooling Has Range of Potential Uses

Heber_coolinginEIBT.jpg

Prof. Daniel Zajfman's universal ion trap cools to a tenth of a degree above absolute zero. The new method does not depend on the type or the weight of the ion and, thus, might be used to investigate the properties of large biological molecules or nanoparticles, among other things.
