From literature I've been reading, I find that scientists are able to "map" atomic states onto photon states. Are they talking about spin states and corresponding photon polarization states? Can ...
Recent research at IBM has found a way to store 1 bit of data in 12 atoms. While that is a big accomplishment compared to what we have today, it does seem like a waste to a non-physics eye like me. ...
Say we start with an entangled electron--positron pair and we separate them. I want to take the entangled electron and bind it to a proton or the outer shell of an atom. Is it possible to do this ...
