Researchers Shed Light on Entangled Electrons
Prof. Hakan Tureci and his international collaborators have used lasers peek into the complex relationship between a single electron and its environment, a breakthrough that could aid the development of quantum computers. The results have been published in Physical Review Letters and the journal Nature.
The technique reveals how an isolated electron and its surroundings develop a relationship known as a Kondo state – a state of matter that is of great interest to physicists and engineers. The results not only yield insights into a long-standing quandary in theoretical physics, but also may help scientists understand how to store information at the smallest possible scales, which would open vast new realms of computing power.
