Closer to a simple and efficient method of quantum encryption

Banks and government departments are already investing heavily in quantum encryption that relies on laser beams. However, laser beams often release several photons at once or none at all. A team at Hebrew University developed ...

Visualizing atomic-scale structures with the optical force

A team of scientists led by the Department of Applied Physics at Osaka University, the Department of Physics and Electronics at Osaka Prefecture University, and the Department of Materials Chemistry at Nagoya University used ...

Temporal control of light echoes

Scientists at Paderborn University, the Technical University of Dortmund and the University of Würzburg have for the first time used laser pulses to precisely control photon echoes, which can occur when light waves superimpose ...

Colloidal quantum dot laser diodes are just around the corner

Los Alamos scientists have incorporated meticulously engineered colloidal quantum dots into a new type of light emitting diodes (LEDs) containing an integrated optical resonator, which allows them to function as lasers. These ...
