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.
Physicists find a new way to slow the speed of light
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
Scientists create never-before-seen form of matter
Harvard and MIT scientists are challenging the conventional wisdom about light, and they didn't need to go to a galaxy far, far away to do it.
A matter of matter: Demonstrating destructive quantum interference using Bose-Einstein condensates
Towards a global quantum network: Photoelectron trapping in double quantum dots
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, ...
