Scientists Record Electron's Quantum Behavior
2014-08-18 03:07:24

By Jane Marie Andrew, University of Chicago A University of Chicago-led team of researchers has developed a technique to record the quantum mechanical behavior of an individual electron contained within a nanoscale defect in diamond. Their technique uses ultrafast pulses of laser light, both to control the defect’s entire quantum state and observe how that single electron state changes over time. The work appears in this week’s online Science Express and will be published in print...

Carefully fabricating nanofibers by heating and pulling may make for highly-efficient, optics-based, low-power atom traps WASHINGTON, June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Take a fine strand of silica fiber, attach it at each end to a slow-turning motor, gently torture it over an unflickering flame until it just about reaches its melting point and then pull it apart. The middle will thin out like a piece of taffy until it is less than half a micron across -- about 200 times...
