Researchers at the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information in Austria have succeeded in creating the first ever dipolar quantum mixture in which Bose-Einstein condensates made of two different highly magnetic species coexist and interact with each other over a long range. The condensates, made of erbium and dysprosium, might be used to study the quantum behaviour of ultracold gases (such as fermionic superfluids) in more detail as well as to create novel states of matter containing many-body quantum states.
