Pinning atoms into order

Pinning atoms into order: In an international first, physicists of the University of Innsbruck, Austria have experimentally observed a quantum phenomenon, where an arbitrarily weak perturbation causes atoms to build an organized structure from an initially unorganized one. The scientific team headed by Hanns-Christoph N├Ągerl has published a paper about quantum phase transitions in a one dimensional quantum lattice in the scientific journal Nature.
