Since the photons remain linked even after they are out of the cloud of ultracold rubidium atoms, they can be considered to be strongly correlated, or entangled - making them a potential candidate for a quantum computing bit, or a qubit.
Now when the rubidium rushes out fast enough, if behaves as if it has negative mass.
About 120 milliseconds after Steinhauer set the rubidium atoms in motion, a rapidly intensifying cluster of sound waves rippled between the two horizons.
In the framework of the IRNSS program, each satellite will have four SpectraTime Rubidium atomic clocks on board to reach a stability of less than 10 billionths of a second per day.
To perform atomic spectroscopy, the researchers incorporated rubidium reservoirs into a chip, connecting the reservoirs to hollow-core waveguides so the optical beam path is filled with rubidium atoms.
They supercooled atoms of the element rubidium to the coldest temperature ever--nearly -273 [degrees] C (-460 [degrees] F), also known as absolute zero (see "thermometer," left).

Then they placed a single atom of rubidium in the cavity to function as a security guard.
Low-jitter differential clock outputs and a rubidium time base also are available.
According to a report in National Geographic News, in a new technique, Martin Weitz and Ulrich Vogl of the University of Bonn in Germany used a laser to bring the temperature of dense rubidium gas far below the normal point at which the gas becomes a solid.
Summary: SpectraTime, a company of the Orolia group (NYSE Alternext Paris - FR0010501015 - ALORO), today announced the award of a contract valued at approximately [euro]4 million to supply Rubidium Space Clocks to the Indian Regional Navigational Satellite System (IRNSS).
The sensor uses a milliwatt laser shone through a small container of rubidium gas.
This is done while both opposing beams pass through a warmed rubidium vapor trapped in a glass vacuum tube.
