Description:

This page showcases research conducted at MIT on the laser-cooling of macroscopic materials, in order to observe quantum effects. The material--a dime-sized mirror--was suspended with laser beams and cooled to temperatures near 0.8 degrees Kelvin. The site also provides images of the experimental apparatus and the researchers.
