ABSTRACT
The article reports on the success of atomic spectroscopy with integrated optics on a chip for the first time according to researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz and Brigham Young University in the U.S. It guides a beam of light through a rubidium-vapor cell integrated into a semiconductor chip. Frequency stabilization for lasers, gas-detection sensors and quantum information processing are some of the potential applications.
