New ‘switch’ could power quantum computing: Light lattice traps atoms, builds networks of quantum information transmitters

Using a laser to place individual rubidium atoms near the surface of a lattice of light, scientists have developed a new method for connecting particles — one that could help in the development of powerful quantum computing systems. The new technique allows researchers to couple a lone atom of rubidium, a metal, with a single photon, or light particle.
