Two new research studies are offering novel methods for measuring and controlling phonons, or bits of energy which exist in quantum form in collective particles. Advancements like those described in these studies will offer insight into the behavior of individual phonons inside massive systems, which could, in turn, support a variety of practical applications, including quantum information storage.
