Dr. Tim Langen, research group leader at the University of Stuttgart, has been awarded the Rudolf Kaiser Prize 2019. The prize is among the most prestigious and highly endowed research awards for young researchers in Germany. It is awarded annually to a young experimental physicist with extraordinary scientific achievements. Dr. Langen receives the prize in recognition of his work on superfluidity and supersolidity of dipolar quantum gases, in particular the observation of a novel state of matter that combines the crystal order of a solid with the frictionless flow of a superfluid.
