Latest Photons Stories
Scientists have slowed the speed of light by changing its shape! Was Einstein wrong? What will happen next? It's all so exciting!
At the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien), two photons were made to interact strongly using an ultra-thin glass fiber. This technique is an important new tool for quantum technology.
Researchers at the University of Waterloo in Canada have directly entangled three photons in the most technologically useful state for the first time, thanks in part to superfast, super-efficient single-photon detectors developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Weizmann Institute scientists have demonstrated for the first time a photonic router – a quantum device based on a single atom that enables routing of single photons by single photons.

Solar cells offer the opportunity to harvest abundant, renewable energy.
Scientists from Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have joined forces to create a never-before-seen form of matter that is said to behave like the legendary light sabers of Star Wars fame.
Harnessing the unique features of the quantum world promises a dramatic speed-up in information processing as compared to the fastest classical machines.
One of the most basic laws of quantum mechanics is that a system can be in more than one state – it can exist in multiple realities – at once.
A new device developed by researchers at the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) uses an active detection process to establish a new, more accurate standard for reading quantum information.
