The extraordinary strength of pairing makes this first-ever fermionic condensate of special interest to scientists and engineers because it's a property that scientists expect to find in future superconductors that might operate at room temperature.
researchers have confined fermionic atoms, such as lithium-6, in traps and then chilled the particles to nearly absolute zero, so that the particles coalesced into what are known as superfluid fermionic condensates (SN: 9/11/99,p.
