    Naturally Occurring Vibrations in Artificial Atoms Could Be Used to Build Quantum Sensors

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    The discrete nature of photons that are emitted from individual atoms ensures low fluctuations in brightness, as only one photon is emitted at a time. Scientists believe this property could be useful in developing future quantum technologies where low fluctuations will be important. Consequently, there is increased interest in building “artificial atoms” — engineered systems that act like atoms when they emit light, but whose properties are more easily tailored.

    The presence of vibrations in these artificial atoms, which are much larger than natural atoms, is unavoidable and usually considered to be detrimental.

    However, a research team led by the University of Bristol has established that the vibrations…
