Using light, atoms can be made to attract each other. A team from Vienna and Innsbruck was able to measure this binding state of light and matter for…

a wave is sent from the left onto the medium with impurities inside. the transmitted and the reflected parts oft the light are shown on screens

From mobile phones to cloudy glass panes: annoying reflections often hinder the propagation of waves. TU Wien (Vienna) and the University of Rennes…
