Entanglement between particle and wave-like states of light resembles Schrodinger's cat experiment (Update)
Quantum teleportation performed with light from a quantum dot embedded in an LED
Scientists use lasers and carbon nanotubes to look inside living brains
(Phys.org) —A team of Stanford scientists has developed an entirely non-invasive technique that provides a view of blood flow in the brain. The tool could provide powerful insights into strokes and possibly ...
Light-emitting nanotubes get brighter with zero-dimensional states
Vibrational motion of a single molecule measured in real time
For the first time, chemists have succeeded in measuring vibrational motion of a single molecule with a femtosecond time resolution. The study reveals how vibration of a single molecule differs from the behaviour of larger ...
Quantum dot LED approaches theoretical maximum efficiency
Physicists experimentally demonstrate one-way quantum steering
Inverted polymer solar cell efficiency sets world record
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.
Study offers insights into a new class of semiconducting materials
A new paper by University of Notre Dame researchers describes their investigations of the fundamental optical properties of a new class of semiconducting materials known as organic-inorganic "hybrid" perovskites.
New material gives visible light an infinite wavelength
Researchers from the FOM Institute AMOLF and the University of Pennsylvania have fabricated a material which gives visible light a nearly infinite wavelength. The new metamaterial is made by stacking silver ...
Quantum algorithm breakthrough
An international research group led by scientists from the University of Bristol, UK, and the University of Queensland, Australia, has demonstrated a quantum algorithm that performs a true calculation for the first time. ...
