Two awards for the quantum physicist Francesca Ferlaino

This was in honor of her opening up the new research area of quantum gases with dipolar, magnetic effects. At the beginning of November, she was also given the Antonio Feltrinell Prize bestowed on young scientists by the Italian Academy of Sciences. The award of the Accademie dei Lincei endowed to the amount of EUR 50,000 was granted for the first time this year, and focuses on Italian scholars under the age of 40 who have achieved exceptional and internationally recognized results in their field.

Born in Naples, the quantum physicist Francesca Ferlaino devotes her research to investigating ultracold quantum materials, where the rules of quantum mechanics govern the behavior of the particles. Ferlaino’s research focuses on the study of dipolar quantum phenomena. Together with her team, she was the first one to prepare ultracold quantum gases of erbium atoms. These relatively heavy atoms of rare earth metals offer a new playground to study complex quantum behavior, where interaction over long distances and anisotropy are in play. The goal is to provide a basic understanding of complex geometry-dependent quantum systems, which will lead them into areas of quantum physics that have not been investigated so far.

Life Sciences ‚Made in Austria’ – successfully linked research and practice

There is good news in the field of cancer research. According to Viennese experts, the danger of dying from cancer has declined by 25 percent over the last 25 years. The number of new cases has also dropped by 12 percent since 1995. Austria in particular has been able to score points in this field. In the last Eurocare study, the country was ranked fourth with respect to surviving cancer, performing significantly better than the European average.
