Succeeded in observing a two-phonon quantum interference, a world first

Osaka, Japan (SPX) Jan 01, 2016

A research group at Osaka University has succeeded in observing at the intended timing two-phonon quantum interference by using two cold calcium ions in ion traps, which spatially confine charged particles.

A phonon is a unit of vibrational energy that arises from oscillating particles within crystals. Two-particle quantum interference experiments using two photons or atoms have been previ —> Read More
