Researchers have developed a new detector that can precisely measure single photons at very high rates. The new device could help make high-speed quantum communication practical.
The UK Space Agency has announced £50 million of funding for ambitious and innovative projects that will supercharge the UK’s satellite communications industry.
Optical fibres are the backbone of our modern information networks. From long-range communication over the internet to high-speed information transfer within data centres and stock exchanges, optical fibre remains critical in our globalised world.
Researchers demonstrated high-visibility quantum interference between two independent semiconductor quantum dots — an important step toward scalable quantum networks.
During photosynthesis, a chemical reaction jumpstarted by sunlight breaks down chemicals into the food plants need to repair themselves and to grow.
Conventional light sources for fiber-optic telecommunications emit many photons at the same time. Photons are particles of light that move as waves.
A new study, completely carried out by scientists at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC), has come up with the most comprehensive analysis thus far of the intracluster light (ICL)—the diffuse and faint light—discharged by stars in galaxy clusters that are not gravitationally connected to any galaxy.
NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has exposed the once-concealed characteristics of the protostar inside the dark cloud L1527, offering new understandings concerning the birth of a new star.
Chirality is the breaking of reflection and inversion symmetries. Simply put, it is when an object's mirror images cannot be superimposed over each other.
An international team of scientists, including researchers at the University of Adelaide, have gathered new evidence about the energetic core of an active galaxy millions of lights years away by detecting neutrino particles emitted by it.
