Physicists experimentally demonstrate one-way quantum steering
Inverted polymer solar cell efficiency sets world record
Spiral-shaped 'light fan' adds new twist to laser-driven plasma accelerators
Fast photon control brings quantum photonic technologies closer
Lenses can bend light and sound in almost any direction
Researchers glimpse the inside of a photonic crystal
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.
New way to store light could prove useful for optical communication
On-chip topological light: First measurements of transmission and delay
Topological transport of light is the photonic analog of topological electron flow in certain semiconductors. In the electron case, the current flows around the edge of the material but not through the bulk. ...
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.
