Chip protects single atoms

Abstract:
Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Physics and Ludwig Maximilians University in Germany have found a way to closely control the quantum states, or traits, of single atoms trapped in a microchip. The method is a step toward building devices that depend on traits of single atoms, like miniature atomic clocks that are an order of magnitude more accurate than those that exist today, and quantum computers.
