The sound of an atom has been captured

Sep 12, 2014 08:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology On the right, an artificial atom generates sound waves consisting of ripples on the surface of a solid. The sound, known as a surface acoustic wave (SAW) is picked up on the left by a "microphone" composed of interlaced metal fingers. According to theory, the sound consists of a stream of quantum particles, the weakest whisper physically possible. The illustration is not to scale.

Sep 12, 2014 08:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology The artificial atom, in grey-blue to the upper right, can emit and absorb sound that moves across the surface of a microchip. The grey-blue structure to the lower left is the combined loudspeaker/microphone used to communicate acoustically with the atom.
