The “sound” produced by atoms was first heard and turned into a “package” of information, a sort of ‘bit’ to transmit data. The result, published in the journal Science, paves the way for the possibility of building computers much more powerful and faster than the current ones. The idea is from the Swedish research group of the Chalmers University of Technology coordinated by Per Delsing. Dialoguing for the first time with an atom, the researchers managed to capture the sound, thus obtaining units called “phonons”. These could be used to convey information in a similar way to what you are trying to do with light particles (or photons), considered essential for future quantum computers, very fast and much more powerful than current computers.
