A matter of matter: Demonstrating destructive quantum interference using Bose-Einstein condensates
A cure for clashing qubits: Researchers successfully entangle different-color photons
Nanostructures enhance light trapping for solar fuel generation
Photons' journeys across the universe help unravel cosmological mysteries
Photon-plasmon nanowire laser offers new opportunities in light manipulation
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.
Towards a global quantum network: Photoelectron trapping in double quantum dots
Light-emitting nanotubes get brighter with zero-dimensional states
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 ...
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 ...
Team reveals molecular structure of water at gold electrodes
When a solid material is immersed in a liquid, the liquid immediately next to its surface differs from that of the bulk liquid at the molecular level. This interfacial layer is critical to our understanding ...
Researchers build reversible tractor beam that moves objects 100 times farther than other efforts
Three's a charm: NIST detectors reveal entangled photon triplets
Researchers at the University of Waterloo in Canada have directly entangled three photons in the most technologically useful state for the first time, thanks in part to superfast, super-efficient single-photon ...
Physicists build first 500 GHz photon switch
The work took nearly four years to complete and it opens a fundamentally new direction in photonics – with far-reaching potential consequences for the control of photons in optical fiber channels.
