Nanoimaging in 3-D
Quantum dynamics of matter waves reveal exotic multibody collisions
At extremely low temperatures atoms can aggregate into so-called Bose Einstein condensates forming coherent laser-like matter waves. Due to interactions between the atoms fundamental quantum dynamics emerge ...
Exerting better control over matter waves
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.
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 ...
Using quantum smoothing for optical phase estimation
Single molecule can shift the phase of a laser beam
A microscopic view on quantum fluctuations
(PhysOrg.com) -- Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics achieve direct imaging of quantum fluctuations at absolute zero temperature.
Optical microscopy enters a new phase: 3D measurement through tomographic bright field imaging
Higgs excitations near absolute zero
(Phys.org) -- A collaboration of physicists from Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, LMU, Harvard and Caltech detect Higgs-type excitations in a low-dimensional system of ultracold atoms at the transition ...
Solving nearly century-old problem: Using graphene, professor finds out what causes low-frequency electronic 1/f noise
(Phys.org) —A University of California, Riverside Bourns College of Engineering professor and a team of researchers published a paper today that show how they solved an almost century-old problem that could ...
'Nano-pixels' promise thin, flexible, high resolution displays
A new discovery will make it possible to create pixels just a few hundred nanometres across that could pave the way for extremely high-resolution and low-energy thin, flexible displays for applications such ...
Magical BEANs: New nano-sized particles could provide mega-sized data storage
The ability of phase-change materials to readily and swiftly transition between different phases has made them valuable as a low-power source of non-volatile or “flash” memory and data storage. Now an ...
