Popper's experiment realized again—but what does it mean?
Entanglement on a chip: Breakthrough promises secure communications and faster computers
Unlike Bilbo's magic ring, which entangles human hearts, engineers have created a new micro-ring that entangles individual particles of light, an important first step in a whole host of new technologies.
Physicist suggests new experiments could make or break axion as dark matter theory
DNA does design: 3D plasmonic photonic crystals are the first devices prepared by DNA-guided colloidal crystallization
Researchers build an array of light detectors on a photonic chip able to record single photons
Photonic crystal nanolaser biosensor simplifies DNA detection
A simple method to sense DNA, as well as potential biomarker proteins of cancer or other diseases such as Alzheimer's, may soon be within reach - thanks to the work of a team of Yokohama National University ...
Nanoscale mirrored cavities amplify, connect quantum memories
The idea of computing systems based on controlling atomic spins just got a boost from new research performed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven ...
Graphene enables all-electrical control of energy flow from light emitters
At the heart of lasers, displays and other light-emitting devices lies the emission of photons. Electrically controlled modulation of this emission is of great importance in applications such as optical communication, ...
Research proves that light-sensitive cells in frog eyes can detect single photons
Miniature light detectors in frog eyes known as retinal rod cells are directly and unambiguously shown to detect single photons of light—an astounding sensitivity considering that a humble 60 watt light ...
