 Ultracold science finds new method to get even colder

 Researchers have developed a clever way to achieve the lowest temperatures ever recorded on Earth.

 Achieving such temperatures is necessary to study fundamental properties of matter and the strange effects caused by quantum mechanics.

 The new method relies on "optical lattices" of atoms from which only the hottest atoms are selectively removed.

 The approach, reported in Nature, may be well-suited to create memory for future quantum computers.

 Atoms can be held in place using light, forming an "optical lattice", cooled to extremely low temperature
