How cold is cold?

February 12, 2009

I just came back from our departmental colloqium by Dr. Wolfgang Ketterle, a Nobel laureate for Physics from 2001, who’s resume list of prizes runs for almost a page who came down to share his insights into Bose-Einstein Condensates and BCSs, which I still don’t get. In his wonderfully German accented English he explained how he hopes to create room temperature superconductors and superfluids and why a superfluid does not rotate in a normal way. So is 100 nano Kelvin cold?
