Physics Professor Mark Raizen has written about his research in cooling atoms for Scientific America. The article, headlined, “Demons, Entropy, and the Quest for Absolute Zero,” appears in the March 2011 issue.

Raizen writes about the series of experiments that he and his lab group have conducted that has resulted in the ability to control most atoms.

The article is at http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=demons-entropy-and-the-quest. It should be available to readers with a UT EID to read online. Others can check a copy of Scientific American.
