Physicists experimentally demonstrate one-way quantum steering
Inverted polymer solar cell efficiency sets world record
Solid-state proteins maximize the intensity of fluorescent-protein-based lasers
The same research team that developed the first laser based on a living cell has shown that use of fluorescent proteins in a solid form rather than in solution greatly increases the intensity of light produced, ...
Quantum communication without entanglement could perform faster than previously thought possible
Quantum strategies fail to improve capacity of quantum optical communication channels
Scientists discover how to turn light into matter after 80-year quest
Imperial College London physicists have discovered how to create matter from light - a feat thought impossible when the idea was first theorised 80 years ago.
255 Terabits/s: Researchers demonstrate record data transmission over new type of fiber
Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the Netherlands and the University of Central Florida (CREOL), report in the journal Nature Photonics the successful transmission of a record high 2 ...
Researchers build reversible tractor beam that moves objects 100 times farther than other efforts
Two photons strongly coupled by glass fiber
Usually, light waves do not interact with each other. Coupling of photons with other photons is only possible with the help of special materials and very intense light. Scientists in Vienna have now created ...
Turning loss to gain: Cutting power could dramatically boost laser output
Lasers – devices that deliver beams of highly organized light – are so deeply integrated into modern technology that their basic operations would seem well understood. CD players, medical diagnostics ...
