Description: 

Left to right: Phillip Anderson and Paul Richards of Bell Laboratories inspect the instrument used in their experiment which proved that the atoms of superfluid liquid helium behave like coherent waves, interacting in such a way that the viscosity of the fluid becomes zero. Thus they have confirmed recent theories that superfluidity and superconductivity are related and explainable by the quantum mechanics concept that matter has the properties of waves as well as particles.
