Latest Optical lattice Stories
Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen have developed a method that used a trap to capture atoms along an ultra-thin glass fiber, where those atoms can be controlled. Their results have been published in the journal Physical Review Letters.
One of the most remarkable consequences of the rules in quantum mechanics is the capability of a quantum particle to penetrate through a potential barrier even though its energy would not allow for the corresponding classical trajectory.
University of Chicago physicists have experimentally demonstrated, for the first time, that atoms chilled to temperatures near absolute zero may behave like seemingly unrelated natural systems of vastly different scales, offering potential insights into links between the atomic realm and deep questions of cosmology.
Just as NASA engineers test new rocket designs in computer studies before committing themselves to full prototypes, so physicists will often model matter under various circumstances to see whether something new appears.
University of Michigan physicists used the electric fields generated by intersecting laser beams to trap and manipulate thousands of microscopic plastic spheres, thereby creating 3-D arrays of optically induced crystals.
Fundamental physical phenomena demonstrated for the first time.
Scientists demonstrate for the first time exotic multiparticle interactions between ultracold atoms in an artificial crystal of light.
In an achievement that could help enable fast quantum computers, University of Michigan physicists have built a better Rydberg atom trap.
NIST physicists predict new form of soliton in ultracold gases.
Research creates a readout system for quantum simulation and computation.
