Quantum sensor breakthrough using naturally occurring vibrations in artificial atoms

Posted by in categories: particle physics, quantum physics

A team of scientists, led by the University of Bristol, have discovered a new method that could be used to build quantum sensors with ultra-high precision.

When emit , they do so in discrete packets called photons.

When this light is measured, this discrete or ‘granular’ nature leads to especially low fluctuations in its brightness, as two or more photons are never emitted at the same time.
