Breaking Bad Bonds: Combining Physics and Chemistry
Walter White had it backwards. He used chemistry to produce crystals that could take people to space or even further. Instead we use (coulomb) crystals to bring the conditions of space to us. This week I'll delve into ion trapping and laser cooling which are used to produce coulomb crystals, and how our baby blue allows us to study chemistry in the interstellar medium.
