    Predicting when a quantum system will “jump” from one state to the other is impossible — or at least that’s what experts thought until Monday, when the Yale researchers published a study in the journal Nature detailing their discovery of an early warning system for quantum jumps.

    Using a combination of three microwave generators, an aluminum cavity, and a superconducting artificial atom, the team found it could predict when the atom was about to make a quantum jump — they just had to look for a sudden absence of a certain type of photons emitting from the atom.

    “The beautiful effect displayed by this experiment is the increase of coherence during the jump, despite its observation,” researcher Michel Devoret said in a press release, with his colleague Zlatko Minev adding, “You can leverage this to not only catch the jump, but also reverse it.”
