Remote quantum applications, teleportation enabled by calling long distance between superconducting qubits
(Phys.org) —Researchers have developed a way for superconducting quantum chips to talk to each other over large distances through an optical fibre, allowing quantum entanglement or teleportation - both ...
Entangled Light in Bose-Einstein Condensates
Transparent iron? For the first time, an experiment shows that atomic nuclei can become transparent
At the high-brilliance synchrotron light source PETRA III, a team of DESY scientists headed by Dr. Ralf Röhlsberger has succeeded in making atomic nuclei transparent with the help of X-ray light. At the ...
Print your own lasers, lights and TV screens
Imagine printing your own room lighting, lasers, or solar cells from inks you buy at the local newsagent. Jacek Jasieniak and his colleagues at CSIRO, the University of Melbourne and the University of Padua ...
NTT researchers develop breakthrough optical memory device
New way to store light could prove useful for optical communication
Vertical cavity quantum switch could lead us away from electronics-based computing
When the speed of light depends on its direction
Light does not travel at the same speed in all directions under the effect of an electromagnetic field. Although predicted by theory, this counter-intuitive effect has for the first time been demonstrated ...
Squeezed light from single atoms
(PhysOrg.com) -- Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics scientists generate amplitude-squeezed light fields using single atoms trapped inside optical cavities.
Engineers at Yale develop new type of mechanical memory
Seeing a photon without absorbing it
Light is of fundamental importance. It allows us to see the world around us and record pictures of our environment. It enables communication over long distances through optical fibers. All current methods ...
'Photon glue' enables a new quantum mechanical state
(Phys.org) —Like a spring connecting two swings, light can act as photon glue that binds together the quantum mechanical properties of two vastly different materials.
Could light and matter coupling lead to quantum computation?
New method proposed for detecting gravitational waves from ends of universe
A new window into the nature of the universe may be possible with a device proposed by scientists at the University of Nevada, Reno and Stanford University that would detect elusive gravity waves from the ...
