Ultra-cold plasma achieves magnetic confinement in the laboratory for the first time

According to a recent report in Physical Review Letters, physicists at Rice University in the United States have discovered a way to trap the world’s coldest plasma in a magnetic bottle. This technological achievement helps advance research on clean energy, space weather and astrophysics. The plasma used by the research team in the latest experiment is described as the coldest plasma in the world, and its temperature is about 1°C higher than absolute zero, or -272°C.
