Theorist Murray Holland and his students have figured out a way to understand the quantum behavior of atoms inside every laser in JILA, including two superradiant lasers in the Thompson lab that work entirely differently from all the others. Their secret: the application of SU(4) group theory, originally used to explain quark physics, to the quantum behavior of atoms in a laser.
