Conceptual Design of a Micron-Scale Atomic Clock

  title={Conceptual Design of a Micron-Scale Atomic Clock},
  author={E. Hannah and Michael A. Brown},
  journal={arXiv: Atomic Physics},
A theoretical proposal for reducing an entire atomic clock to micron dimensions. A phosphorus or nitrogen atom is introduced into a fullerene cage. This endohedral fullerene is then coated with an insulating shell and a number of them are deposited as a thin layer on a silicon chip. Next to this layer a GMR sensor is fabricated which is close to the endohedral fullerenes. This GMR sensor measures oscillating magnetic fields on the order of micro-gauss from the nuclear spins varying at the… Expand
Spin Resonance Clock Transition of the Endohedral Fullerene ^{15}N@C_{60}.
The endohedral fullerene ^{15}N@C_{60} has narrow electron paramagnetic resonance lines which have been proposed as the basis for a condensed-matter portable atomic clock and a bound is placed on the clock's projected frequency stability. Expand

Quantum-cellular-automata quantum computing with endohedral fullerenes
We present a scheme to perform universal quantum computation using global addressing techniques as applied to a physical system of endohedrally doped fullerenes. The system consists of an ABAB linearExpand
