Experiments that probe the exotic behaviour of matter at ultralow temperatures depend on the latest cryogenics technology. This special collection explores the tools and techniques used at cryogenic temperatures, as well as some of the latest research in low-temperature physics.
Training webinars from the British Cryogenics CouncilThe British Cryogenics Council has worked with Physics World to provide three training webinars on the use of cryogenics technology in scientific research. The webinars can be watched live in Cryogenics Week, which runs 23–27 July 2018, or you can catch up on demand at any time.
Cryogenics in action
Harvard physicists Isaac Silvera and Ranga Dias claim they made metallic hydrogen, but other remain unconvinced. Jon Cartwright explores both sides of the argument
Electronic properties can be changed by misaligning two graphene sheets
Ultra-clean observations could lead to topologically-protected quantum computers
Microscopic drum cooled below quantum limit
Spins in Bose-Einstein condensate oscillate in unison
Videos explain supercool physics
Directions in superconductivity
Nanostructures remain crucial both in attempts to better understand superconductivity, as well as efforts to apply it
A century after its discovery, Paul Michael Grant explains why superconductivity still confounds and baffles us today
Laura H Greene calls for a global collaboration in the search for new high-temperature superconductors
