Atom trap delivers single atoms on demand

from the single-minded dept.
PhysicsWeb reports that researchers at the University of Bonn in Germany have developed an 'atom trap' that can manipulate single atoms with sub-micron precision and can deliver them on demand. The device uses light to move single atoms around, put them down where they are needed and launch them into space at a specified speed.

Another brief report appears on the Nature Science Update website.
