A new technique to measure vibrating atoms could improve the precision of atomic clocks and of quantum sensors for detecting dark matter or
Noise from the classical world, which can quickly overpower small atomic vibrations and make any changes to those oscillations devilishly hard to detect, is a significant barrier in the way of improved quantum measurements.
