A cure for clashing qubits: Researchers successfully entangle different-color photons
Nanostructures enhance light trapping for solar fuel generation
Photon-plasmon nanowire laser offers new opportunities in light manipulation
How the signal from light triggers biological action in bacteria
Sunlight is the basis for all life on Earth so it should come as no surprise that many organisms have developed complex systems for detecting the quality and quantity of light in their environment. Plants, ...
Researchers overcome noise problems in ultrasensitive measurements of tiny amounts of compounds
As the sensitivity of plasmonic sensors reaches new heights, so does the challenge of using tiny sample volumes. Dmitry Kalashnikov and co-workers at the A*STAR Data Storage Institute in Singapore have devised ...
How gamma ray telescopes work
Yesterday I talked about the detection of gamma ray bursts, intense blasts of gamma rays that occasionally appear in distant galaxies. Gamma ray bursts were only detected when gamma ray satellites were put ...
Picturing Schrodinger's cat: Quantum physics enables revolutionary imaging method
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI), the Vienna Center for Quantum Science and Technology (VCQ), and the University of Vienna have developed a fundamentally new ...
Physicist suggests speed of light might be slower than thought
Physicist suggests some types of wormholes may stay open long enough to send a photon through
Defying physics, engineers prove a magnetic field for light
In electronics, changing the path of electrons and manipulating how they flow is as easy as applying a magnetic field.
X-rays unlock a protein's SWEET side
Sugar is a vital source of energy for both plants and animals alike.
Japanese universities develop new world's fastest camera
Tiny laser gives big boost to high speed data transmission
(Phys.org) —High-speed communication just got a turbo boost, thanks to a new laser technology developed at the University of Illinois that transmits error-free data over fiber optic networks at a blazing ...
Earth's core reveals an inner weakness
(Phys.org) —The word "core" conjures up an image of something strong. However, new experiments show that the iron found in the Earth's core is relatively weak. This finding is based on x-ray spectroscopy ...
