JQI Researchers Create the Best Quantum Receiver

JQI Researchers Create the Best Quantum Receiver

Researchers try to meet the inexorable demands made on the telecommunications grid by improving various components. In October 2014, for instance, scientists at the Eindhoven University of Technology in The Netherlands did their part by setting a new record for transmission down a single optical fiber: 255 terabits per second.

Major Upgrade to Improve Quality of Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source’s X-rays

The X-rays produced by the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) are bright, but they will soon be even brighter, thanks to a major upgrade that will make the quality of CHESS’ X-rays competitive with the world’s best synchrotron light sources. [More]
New Theory Result Opens Up Novel Path for Generating Spin Hall Effect

New Theory Result Opens Up Novel Path for Generating Spin Hall Effect

Every electrical device, from a simple lightbulb to the latest microchips, is enabled by the movement of electrical charge, or current. The nascent field of ‘spintronics’ taps into a different electronic attribute, an intrinsic quantum property known as spin, and may yield devices that operate on the basis of spin-transport. [More]

JQI Scientists Obtain Interference Pattern with Extremely Narrow Fringes Using Incoherent Light

Observing the quantum behavior of light is a big part of Alan Migdall’s research at the Joint Quantum Institute. Many of his experiments depend on observing light in the form of photons---the particle complement of light waves---and sometimes only one photon at a time, using “smart” detectors that can count the number of individual photons in a pulse.
