This quantum-logic clock, based on atomic energy levels in the aluminum ion, Al+, has an uncertainty of 1 second per 3.
This process results in shifts of the atomic energy levels, which, in turn, affect the frequencies of light that are emitted and absorbed in experiments.
The researchers can now make extremely sensitive measurements of the light emitted and absorbed by the trapped atoms, providing the first experimental results on various transitions between atomic energy levels in francium.
By precisely measuring the wavelengths of these X-rays, the researchers could calculate a quantity known as the Lamb shift, a small change in atomic energy levels caused by interactions between electrons bound to a nucleus but still moving around.
In other words, the act of observing an atom to determine its state can interfere with quantum jumps between atomic energy levels.
