The tracking of individual atoms diffusing in a cold, rarefied gas reveals the influence that a single impact has on randomizing the motion.

Author(s): Philip Ball Up to 75% of light reflects from just 2000 atoms aligned along an optical fiber, an arrangement that could be useful in photonic circuits. [Physics 9, 109] Published Fri Sep 23, 2016
In a combination of experiments and theory the diffusion of individual atoms in periodic systems was understood for the first time. The interaction of individual atoms with light at ultralow temperatures close to the absolute zero t...
