Lasers and Microwaves for Quantum Computing

A new technique from researchers at Penn State University demonstrates that atoms could one day become the building blocks of circuits in quantum computers. The team used a combination of lasers and microwaves to squeeze more quantum computing power into a smaller space and with greater control than ever before.
