AI to Help Control Quantum Particles
In quantum research, customized electromagnetic fields are used to precisely control particles. Physicists at Forschungszentrum Jülich and TU Wien have now shown that machine learning is an excellent way to do this. Tiny particles can be manipulated with electromagnetic fields: They can be captured, held in place or moved to a specific location. However, it is difficult to find out what shape these electromagnetic fields should have exactly and how they should be controlled during the experiment. This often requires lengthy series of experiments with numerous measurements.
