English term or phrase:standing electromagnetic wave
Espero que puedan ayudarme con una expresión inglesa: “standing electromagnetic wave”, relacionada con relojes atómicos. Muchas gracias:
“Now Hidetoshi Katori and his colleagues at the University of Tokyo have come up with an elegant solution that combines the advantages of both systems (Nature, vol 435, p 321). Katori uses six laser beams to create a pattern of standing electromagnetic waves. This creates a series of energy wells, each of which supports one strontium atom, in much the same way as each dimple in an egg box holds an egg (see Diagram). This prevents the electromagnetic fields of individual atoms interfering with those of their neighbours, and allows the oscillating signals of many atoms to be measured at once.”
