A principal component of ALPHA's atom trap is a superconducting octupole magnet proposed and prototyped in Berkeley Lab's AFRD.
Topics for students and researchers include mathematical formulas of atom trap quantum gates, Poisson algebras and Yang-Baxter equations and topological order and entanglement.
Carefully fabricating nanofibers by heating and pulling may make for highly-efficient, optics-based, low-power atom traps
This is where the optical nanofibers come in: The Joint Quantum Institute team realized that nanofibers could create optics-based, low-power atom traps that would "play nice" with superconductors.
The work is an important proof-of-principle, for it shows superposition can be achieved in silicon - the commonest electronic material - rather than in hugely expensive compounds or using sophisticated instruments called atom traps.
Crucially our work shows that some of the quantum engineering already demonstrated by atomic physicists in very sophisticated instruments called cold atom traps, can be implemented in the type of silicon chip used in making the much more common transistor," said Murdin.
It's getting bitterly cold and unnaturally crowded in atom traps.
