Atomistic structure of an artificial atom that could be used to produce light with vibrationally supressed fluctuations for quantum-enhanced sensors. Gerhard Klimeck, Insoo Woo, Muhammad Usman, David S. Ebert (2011), "Self-Assembled Quantum Dot Wave Structure,"

Quantum sensors with ultra-high precision

Atoms emit light in the form discrete packets called photons. If measured, these separate packets lead to particularly profound changes in its brightness, as...

The specialty of the arrow of time in an open quantum system

In both thermodynamics and quantum mechanics, the arrow of time is described by the statistical likelihood of physical procedures. In a new experiment by the...
The Hilbert space graph of the Fibonacci chain with L = 6 sites.

Scientists discovered the explanation for puzzling quantum oscillations

Harvard scientists along with MIT scientists recently trapped quantum simulator, a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state. This demonstration suggests whole new periodic...

Scientists investigate behavior in quantum systems with a toy-inspired technique

Newton’s cradle is more than a popular desktop plaything. It has taught a generation of students about conservation of momentum and energy. Now, Stanford scientists...
