Griffith Uni researchers lead light breakthrough Research physicists have demonstrated the first device capable of amplifying the information in a single particle of light without adding noise. The research collaboration, involving Griffith University, The University of Queensland and University of Science and Technology of China, was able to amplify the noisy quantum state of a single photon subjected to loss, without adding noise in the process; in fact, their amplification reduced...
