Utilizing a peculiarity of quantum mechanics, scientists have actually produced a beryllium crystal efficient in identifying unbelievably weak magnetic fields. The job can someday be made use of to identify theoretical dark matter bits called axions. 

The scientists produced their quantum crystal by capturing 150 billed beryllium bits or ions making use of a system of electrodes and also electromagnetic fields that assisted conquer their all-natural repulsion for each and every various other, Ana Maria Rey, an atomic physicist at JILA, a joint institute in between the National Institute of Specifications and also Modern Technology and also the College of Colorado Stone, informed Live Scientific research.
