Atomic and Molecular Physics

The fermionic analog of a solid-state polaron (an electron surrounded by a cloud of phonons) has been created by dropping a spin-down atom into a Fermi sea of spin-up ultracold atoms.

Superfluidity

Two independent groups have shown that certain defects in superfluids can be identified as solitonic vortices.
