Hackers begone: Measurement-device-independent QKD increases clock rate and transmission distance while reducing failure
High-fidelity photon-to-atom quantum state transfer could form backbone of quantum networks
Confirming Einstein, scientists find 'spacetime foam' not slowing down photons from faraway gamma-ray burst (Update)
One hundred years after Albert Einstein formulated the general theory of relativity, an international team has proposed another experimental proof. In a paper published today in Nature Physics, researchers from t ...
'Solid' light could compute previously unsolvable problems
Researchers at Princeton University have begun crystallizing light as part of an effort to answer fundamental questions about the physics of matter.
Quantum interference links the fate of two atoms
For the first time, physicists from the CNRS and Université Paris-Sud at the Laboratoire Charles Fabry (CNRS/Institut d'Optique Graduate School) have achieved interference between two separate atoms: when ...
255 Terabits/s: Researchers demonstrate record data transmission over new type of fiber
Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the Netherlands and the University of Central Florida (CREOL), report in the journal Nature Photonics the successful transmission of a record high 2 ...
Researchers build reversible tractor beam that moves objects 100 times farther than other efforts
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 ...
Two photons strongly coupled by glass fiber
Usually, light waves do not interact with each other. Coupling of photons with other photons is only possible with the help of special materials and very intense light. Scientists in Vienna have now created ...
