At the APS March meeting in Baltimore, William Phillips of the Joint Quantum Institute described the many ways that trapped atoms are being used to understand the physics of solids.

Nearly 500 people turned out for Physics’ annual session at the APS March meeting. For those that couldn’t make William Phillips’ talk “Why Condensed Matter Physicists Should Pay Attention to Atomic Physics,” we’ve posted a video of it here.

A special thanks to Phillips, who both gave a fantastic talk and stayed long after it was over to answer questions from students.
