Latest Quantum electrodynamics Stories
Quantum mechanics tells us that light can behave simultaneously as a particle or a wave. However, there has never been an experiment able to capture both natures of light at the same time; the closest we have come is seeing either wave or particle, but always at different times. Taking a radically different experimental approach, EPFL scientists have now been able to take the first ever snapshot of light behaving both as a wave and as a particle.
Scientists have slowed the speed of light by changing its shape! Was Einstein wrong? What will happen next? It's all so exciting!
While investigating the use of semiconductor material fragments as components for quantum computing, Princeton University researchers developed a laser the size of a grain of rice.
Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen have developed a method that used a trap to capture atoms along an ultra-thin glass fiber, where those atoms can be controlled. Their results have been published in the journal Physical Review Letters.
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
- An uxorious, effeminate, or spiritless man.
- A timorous, cowardly fellow.
