Physicists from the ARC Centre of Excellence in Engineered Quantum Systems (EQuS) and The University of Sydney's School of Physics have discovered a method of using microwaves to probe the sounds of a quantum dot—a promising platform for building a quantum computer.

PhD candidates, James Colless and Xanthe Croot,  uncovered a way to study what happens when electrons in quantum dots interact with sound waves of the solid they are trapped in.
