The concept of quantum wave turbulence, which describes how wave-like motion transfers energy between macroscopic and microscopic length scales, is examined by an international team of researchers in a recent study published in Nature Physics. The study also addresses a long-standing theoretical prediction regarding energy dissipation at microscopic scales.The study was conducted in the low temperature refrigerator at Aalto University’s Low Temperature Laboratory.

They discovered energy is pushed to smaller and smaller scales to a point where energy is dissipated once it reaches a certain scale.
