Transferring quantum information using sound

Quantum physics has led to new types of sensors, secure data transmission methods and researchers are working toward computers. However, the main obstacle is finding the right way to couple and precisely control a sufficient ...

Device boosts interaction between light and motion

Optomechanical devices, which simultaneously confine light waves and mechanical waves to permit interaction between them, can be used to study fundamental questions in physics and to sense motion similarly to electromechanical ...

Ice shelf vibrations cause unusual waves in Antarctic atmosphere

Low-frequency vibrations of the Ross Ice Shelf are likely causing ripples and undulations in the air above Antarctica, a new study finds. Using mathematical models of the ice shelf, the study's authors show how vibrations ...

Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how the ultrafast light-induced modulation of the atomic positions ...
