Researchers from Princeton University have formulated a method to control and measure atoms that are indistinguishable when observed with an optical lens. The work allows the researchers to observe atomic interactions and quantum mechanical behavior. The research has implications for quantum networking and the study of the fundamental dynamics of strongly interacting quantum systems.
By studying the atoms and their interactions at what the researchers described as “tiny” distances, the researchers were able to look at and control spin, a quantum property and a form of momentum described as being either up or down, or both. When distances between two atoms are vanishingly small, in the realm of billionths of a meter, the spin of one…READ MORE
