Scientists blast atoms with Fibonacci laser to make an ‘extra’ dimension of time


By firing a Fibonacci laser pulse at atoms in a quantum computer, physicists have created an entirely new, strange phase of matter that behaves as if it has two dimensions of time.

The new phase of mattercreated by using lasers to rhythmically shake a strand of 10 ytterbium ions, allows scientists to store information in a much more error-proof manner, opening the path to quantum computers that can hold data for a long time without becoming unreadable. The researchers outlined their findings in a paper published July 20 in the journal Nature (opens in new tab).
