Non-Invasive Technique to Visualize Light Propagation through Optical Nanofiber

Non-Invasive Technique to Visualize Light Propagation through Optical Nanofiber

Optical fibers are hair-like threads of glass used to guide light. Fibers of exceptional purity have proved an excellent way of sending information over long distances and are the foundation of modern telecommunication systems. Transmission relies on what’s called total internal reflection, wherein the light propagates by effectively bouncing back and forth off of the fiber’s internal surface. [More]

CQP Academics Awarded EPSRC Quantum Technologies Fellowships

Light is one of the powerful and trusted ways for us to probe about our environment and to learn about ourselves. It’s use for sensing range from diagnosing how much oxygen is being carried by our blood without drawing a drop of blood, to kilometre scale interferometers used in the quest to search for cosmological phenomena coming from deep space.

Researchers Advance Quantum Teleportation Using High-Dimensional States

A team of scientists have taken quantum teleportation – a method of communicating information from one location to another without having to physically move it – to a higher level by using certain high-dimensional states (which they dubbed “donut” states) for teleportation. [More]
