Atoms queue up for quantum computer networks


Generation and Detection of a Sub-Poissonian Atom Number Distribution in a One-Dimensional Optical Lattice by J.-B. Béguin et al  in Phys. Rev. Lett. 113, 263603 (2014).


Quantum networks -

In order to develop future quantum computer networks, it is necessary to hold a known number of atoms and read them without them disappearing. To do this, researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have developed a method with a trap that captures the atoms along an ultra thin glass fiber, where the atoms can be controlled. The results are published in the scientific journal, Physical Review Letters.
