Quantum Photonics Researchers Develop Single-Photon Cannon

Quantum Photonics Researchers Develop Single-Photon Cannon

Electronic circuits are based on electrons, but one of the most promising technologies for future quantum circuits are photonic circuits, i.e. circuits based on light (photons) instead of electrons. [More]
Innovative Quantum Technique Generates Images with Undetected Photons

Innovative Quantum Technique Generates Images with Undetected Photons

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI), the Vienna Center for Quantum Science and Technology (VCQ), and the University of Vienna have developed a fundamentally new quantum imaging technique with strikingly counterintuitive features. [More]
Photon Science Speedway Addresses Emerging Challenges in Massive Data Analysis

Photon Science Speedway Addresses Emerging Challenges in Massive Data Analysis

A series of experiments conducted by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC) researchers is shedding new light on the photosynthetic process. [More]
DOE Grant to Qubitekk to Accelerate Development of Unhackable Quantum Encryption Technology

DOE Grant to Qubitekk to Accelerate Development of Unhackable Quantum Encryption Technology

San Diego startup Qubitekk will benefit from a $3M Department of Energy grant to speed the development of unhackable quantum encryption technology that will protect the country's power grid from cyber attack. [More]
Understanding of Quantum Laws Reaffirmed

Understanding of Quantum Laws Reaffirmed

Decades of experiments have verified the quirky laws of quantum theory again and again. So when scientists in Germany announced in 2012 an apparent violation of a fundamental law of quantum mechanics, a physicist at the University of Rochester was determined to find an explanation. [More]
New Study Reveals the Classic Signature of a Galaxy Merger

New Study Reveals the Classic Signature of a Galaxy Merger

Using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), and many other telescopes on the ground and in space, an international team of astronomers has obtained the best view yet of a collision that took place between two galaxies when the Universe was only half its current age. [More]
Fermilab’s Holometer Experiment Explores Whether the Universe is a 2-D Hologram

Fermilab’s Holometer Experiment Explores Whether the Universe is a 2-D Hologram

A unique experiment at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory called the Holometer has started collecting data that will answer some mind-bending questions about our universe – including whether we live in a hologram. [More]
Quantum Cascade Laser Device for Diabetics to Check Blood Sugar

Quantum Cascade Laser Device for Diabetics to Check Blood Sugar

Princeton University researchers have developed a way to use a laser to measure people's blood sugar, and, with more work to shrink the laser system to a portable size, the technique could allow diabetics to check their condition without pricking themselves to draw blood. [More]
Scientists Can Now Follow Quantum Systems into Quantum Territory

Scientists Can Now Follow Quantum Systems into Quantum Territory

Groundskeepers and landscapers hate them, but there is no fighting them. Called desire paths, social trails or goat tracks, they are the unofficial shortcuts people create between two locations when the purpose-built path doesn’t take them where they want to go. [More]
Closer to Proving Reliability of Quantum Computers

Closer to Proving Reliability of Quantum Computers

Physicists are one step closer to proving the reliability of a quantum computer – a machine which promises to revolutionise the way we trade over the internet and provide new tools to perform powerful simulations. [More]
