The articles states that the University of Southampton in Southampton, England, and the Imperial College in London, England, have linked up to capture cold atoms for sensor and clock chips. According to the author, micromachines could be used to trap super-cool atoms in accelerometer, gyro and clock chips. In the collaboration, Southampton will be providing the micromachining expertise and Imperial will be handling the atomics.
