SUNY Poly Professor Emilio Cobanera's Collaborative Particle Research Published in Europhysics Letters
As an approximation that works very well in everyday life, some building blocks of nature, called ``particles" by physicists, are indestructible and indivisible (within limits) and other particles can be created and destroyed fairly easily. Atoms, the building blocks of matter, and photons, the particles of light, are good examples. But physics thrives on unity and analogies and so one is tempted to ask if maybe there is some relationship, some mathematical dictionary, between the physics of ``cold," that is, low energy atoms and the physics of confined photons. The answer is a resounding "yes!"
