Beryllium crystal might help us in the hunt for dark matter. Using a quark of quantum mechanics researchers have created a beryllium crystal which is capable of detecting very weak electromagnetic fields. This could be used to detect hypothetical dark matter particles called axions. Ana Maria Rey, an atomic physicist at JILA, a joint institute… Continue reading Could It Detect The Dark Matter Particles?
Quantum technology is currently one of the most active fields of research worldwide. It takes advantage of the special properties of quantum mechanical states of atoms, light, or nanostructures to develop, for example, novel sensors for medicine and navigation, networks for information processing and powerful simulators for materials sciences. Generating these quantum states normally requires a strong interaction between the
