Latest Atom interferometer Stories
Rapid Deployment of First Portable System to Produce Ultracold Atoms Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) December 04, 2014 ColdQuanta recently shipped out its
In a joint project between the Universities of Strathclyde and Glasgow, Imperial College London and the National Physical Laboratory, researchers have developed a portable way to produce ultracold atoms for quantum technology and quantum information processing.
NASA is pursuing a pioneering technology capable of atomic-level precision to detect gravitational waves or ripples in space-time caused by cataclysmic events, including the Big Bang itself.
While airplane and rocket experiments have proved that gravity makes clocks tick more slowly â€“ a central prediction of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity â€“ a new experiment in an atom interferometer measures this slowdown 10,000 times more accurately than before, and finds it to be exactly what Einstein predicted.
PTB researchers want to construct the "atomic clock of the future" much more simply and more compactly than the previous elaborate laboratory set-ups.
