Heidelberg Lectures showcase the synergies of academic tradition and cutting-edge science perfected in Germany and features Nobel Laureates who have distinguished themselves in their respective fields on the highest possible level. As part of this lecture series Nobel Laureate Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Ketterle holds a lecture on ‘New forms of matter with ultracold atoms: Superfluids and supersolids’ followed by a networking reception. Why do physicists freeze matter to extremely low temperatures? Why is it worthwhile to cool to temperatures which are a billion times lower than that of interstellar space? In his talk, Prof. Ketterle will discuss new forms of matter, which only exist at extremely low temperatures. Heidelberg University Association will partner with the American Council on Germany for this project .
