Manipulating individual electrons with the goal of employing quantum effects offers new possibilities and greater precision in electronics. However, these single-electron circuits are governed by the laws of quantum mechanics, meaning that deviations from error-free operation still occur – albeit (in the best possible scenario) only very rarely. Thus, insights into both the physical origin the and metrological aspects of this fundamental uncertainty are crucial for the further development of quantum circuitry. To this end, scientists from the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) and the University of Latvia have collaborated to develop a statistical testing methodology. Their results have been published in the journal Nature Communications.

Das Baryon-Antibaryon-Symmetrie-Experiment (BASE) am Antiprotonen-Entschleuniger des CERN hat neue Grenzen für die Stärke festgelegt, mit der sich Axion-ähnliche Teilchen in Photonen, die Teilchen des Lichts, verwandeln können. Dies ist besonders bemerkenswert, da BASE nicht für solche Untersuchungen konzipiert wurde. Das neue Ergebnis des Experiments, veröffentlicht in Physical Review Letters, beschreibt diese bahnbrechende Methode und eröffnet neue experimentelle Möglichkeiten für die Suche nach kalter Dunkler Materie.
