Using precision laser instrumentation, recent work by Harvard and MIT discovered atom chains oscillating beyond reasonable expectations. An explanation has been offered by researchers from the University of Leeds and others. The observed phenomenon has been labeled as “quantum many-body scars”. The end-effects observed are chains of atoms not filling their entire chaotic-space as one would expect — a quantum scar. The thought is the atoms retain quantum qualities longer than expected. These lengthy oscillations are deemed necessary to advance quantum computing.
