preprint: Phononitons as a sound-based analogue of cavity quantum electrodynamics

June 10th, 2011  |  by  |  published in All, News, Preprints

The progression of quantum technology relies in part on the identification and control of components, such as confined electrons or photons, from which systems of greater complexity are built. Here we describe another potentially valuable component, a composite object formed as a quantum mechanical superposition of a long-lived, localized phonon and a matter excitation: half-sound, half-matter.
