Environment Provides Fast Control of Atom-Optical System in Cavity Quantum ElectroDynamics

Environment Provides Fast Control of Atom-Optical System in Cavity Quantum ElectroDynamics

Control systems are ubiquitous, and as essential as they are easy to overlook. For instance, turning the dial on a thermostat feels as trivial as moving a piece on a board game, but this control system is actually quite complex. [More]
Back and Forth may not be Equal Distances in Quantum Photonic Circuits

Back and Forth may not be Equal Distances in Quantum Photonic Circuits

Quantum technology based on light (photons) has great potential for radically new information technology based on photonic circuits. Up to now, the photons in quantum photonic circuits have behaved in the same way whether they moved forward or backward in a photonic channel. [More]

New Functionalized Homoepitaxial Structures Hold Promise for Graphene-Based Spintronic Devices

New Functionalized Homoepitaxial Structures Hold Promise for Graphene-Based Spintronic Devices

Scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) have created a new type of room-temperature tunnel device structure in which the tunnel barrier and transport channel are made of the same material, graphene. Such functionalized homoepitaxial structures provide an elegant approach for realization of graphene-based spintronic, or spin electronic, devices. The research results are reported in a paper published in the journal ACS Nano (DOI: 10.1021/acsnano.5b02795). [More]
Mini Symposium to Focus on Light-Matter Interactions from Quantum Point of View

Mini Symposium to Focus on Light-Matter Interactions from Quantum Point of View

The meeting will focus on fundamental issues of light-matter interactions from the quantum point of view, the transition between quantum and classical perspectives, and the applications of the insights gained in such a way to the design of molecules and other artificial structures. [More]
New Quantum Technique, Hyperentanglement Holds Promise for Secure Communication and Information Processing

New Quantum Technique, Hyperentanglement Holds Promise for Secure Communication and Information Processing

A team of researchers led by UCLA electrical engineers has demonstrated a new way to harness light particles, or photons, that are connected to each other and act in unison no matter how far apart they are -- a phenomenon known as quantum entanglement. [More]
Mutual Quantum Coherence among Laser Pulses Key to Reversing Interactions that Slow Fiber-Optic Communications

Mutual Quantum Coherence among Laser Pulses Key to Reversing Interactions that Slow Fiber-Optic Communications

Researchers have figured out a way to pump more light farther along an optical fiber, offering engineers a potential solution to the so-called "capacity crunch" that threatens to limit bandwidth on the Web. [More]
Scientists Demonstrate That Quantum Spin Hall Effect is Also an Intrinsic Property of Light

Scientists Demonstrate That Quantum Spin Hall Effect is Also an Intrinsic Property of Light

In a paper that crystalizes knowledge from a variety of experiments and theoretical developments, scientists from the RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science in Japan have demonstrated that the quantum spin Hall effect--an effect known to take place in solid state physics--is also an intrinsic property of light.
