A nanokelvin microwave refrigerator for molecules
A new method to cool gases of polar molecules to near absolute zero paves the way to study quantum effects of exotic matter forms
02-Aug-2022 - Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have developed a novel cooling technique for molecular gases that allows polar molecules to be cooled down to a few nanokelvin. The trick used by the team in Garching to overcome this hurdle is based on a rotating microwave field. It helps ...
New resource for optical chips
22-Feb-2017 - The Semiconductor Industry Association has estimated that at current rates of increase, computers’ energy requirements will exceed the world’s total power output by 2040. Using light rather than electricity to move data would dramatically reduce computer chips’ energy consumption, and the past 20 ...
A signal boost for molecular microscopy
Cavity-enhanced Raman-scattering reveals information on structure and properties of carbon nanotubes
14-Jul-2016 - Carbon nanotubes can be produced with a variety of shapes and properties and are therefore of much interest for widespread applications in fields as diverse as electronics, photonics, nanomechanics, and quantum optics. Hence it is important to have a tool at hand that allows to determine these ...
