Researchers of Chalmers University of Technologies utilized sound to converse with an artificial atom. In this manner they demonstrated the phenomena of quantum physics with sound taking on the role of light.
The communication of atoms with light is well recognized. Therefore, researchers broadly studied this notion in the arena of quantum optics. Even then, to attain the same kind of interaction with sound waves was quite a difficult task.
The researchers of Chalmers University have successfully accomplished this experiment. They created a connection between audio wave and artificial atom. The study was performed with a teamwork of experimental and theoretical physicist.
PerDelsing, head of the experimental analysis group stated they have paved the way of another quantum planet through talking and listening to atom. Moreover, he said that their chief aim is to make use of quantum physics so that they can get advantage from its laws.
An artificial atom is the best example of quantum electric current. It can be indicted with the energy and later on emits it in a particle. The researchers formed the atom of this experiment discharge and absorb energy in a type of a sound.
According to Martin Gustafsson, the first author of the article expressed that the sound which came from the atom is divided into quantum particles. These kind of particles creates the most weakest sound.
Since the sound travels significantly slower than the light, the acoustic atom opens an entire new possibility of controlling the quantum phenomena
The slow pace of sound also indicates that it has relatively a quick wavelength than the light. An atom which comes in contact with light waves is considerably smaller in size than the wavelength.
