Cold-Atom Source Brings Portable Quantum Devices Closer to Reality

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
A high-flux and compact cold-atom source with low power consumption developed by an Oxford University-led research group is poised to enable devices such as space-based atomic clocks, improving quantum applications for communication and navigation. The research is a step toward portable quantum devices. “Compact atomic clocks that can be deployed more widely, including in space, provide resilience in communications networks because local clocks can maintain accurate timekeeping even if there is a network disruption,” said research team leader Christopher Foot of Oxford...Read full article
