Quantum Particles Can Form Droplets

Experiments with magnetic atoms at extremely low temperatures have revealed a surprising form of matter: These atoms form a new kind of quantum liquid. The so-called quantum droplets are kept together without external forces solely by quantum effects. Experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover reported on this effect in Physical Review X.
