Latest Quantum electrodynamics Stories
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.
Scientists from Princeton University have discovered an unusual new type of particle that is essentially its own antiparticle – behaving simultaneously like matter and antimatter, according to a new study currently appearing in the online edition of the journal Science.
Thanks to a particle detector module mounted to the exterior of the International Space Station, researchers have collected new measurements which could help scientists learn more about the origin and characteristics of dark matter.
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.
With precarious particles called polaritons that straddle the worlds of light and matter, University of Michigan researchers have demonstrated a new, practical and potentially more efficient way to make a coherent laser-like beam.
Pamela Fleming, spokesperson of The Institute for Basic Research, Palm Harbor, Florida, has released an open letter to the Directors of Cern laboratories in Geneva, Switzerland, containing unchallenged
Michael Lewis's bestselling book "Flash Boys" describes how some brokers, engaging in high frequency trading, exploit fast telecommunications to gain fraction-of-a-second advantage in the buying and selling of stocks.
First theorized in 1934 by a pair of scientists – Gregory Breit and John Wheeler – turning light into matter was deemed a fantastical and equally impossible feat.
Although Dark Energy and Dark Matter appear to constitute over 95 percent of the universe, nobody knows of which particles they are made up. Astrophysicists now crossed one potential Dark Matter candidate – the Dark Photon or U boson – off the list in top position.
Scientists at MIT and Harvard University have developed a light lattice that traps atoms, a technique they say could aid in the creation of powerful quantum computing systems.
