The 100th Nobel Prize for Physics been awarded to the researchers who
created the first Bose-Einstein condensates - the so-called fifth state
of matter - in the laboratory. Eric
Cornell of JILA and National Institute of Standards and Technology in
Boulder, Colorado, Wolfgang Ketterle of the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, and Carl Wieman of JILA and the University of Colorado,
share the 2001 prize for "the achievement of Bose-Einstein condensation
in dilute gases of alkali atoms, and for early fundamental studies of
the properties of the condensates".
