Quantum mechanics tested at extreme temperatures

University of Western Australia academics are using a powerful refrigerator to study how quantum devices function at extremely low temperatures. The dry dilution machine uses Helium 3 to cool devices to less than eight thousandths of a degree above absolute zero, the coldest temperature possible. Researchers say the machine will help us better understand quantum mechanics.
