In order to better understand quantum physics, advance quantum information processing, and create quantum technologies, photons have served as a flagship system. The utilization of photons as a naturally mobile, low-noise system with widely available quantum-limited detection led to the demonstration of quantum entanglement, teleportation, quantum key distribution, and early quantum computer demonstrations.
In this piece, we discuss the applications and functions of fiber optic communication, as well as current and future advancements in the field.
In the past 50 years, the pursuit of shorter laser pulses has been the driving force in advancing ultrafast science, with laser pulse compression techniques now enabling the generation of single-digit femtoseconds and even attosecond pulse durations.
For the study of such interactions leading to changes in the optical properties of photonic crystals, a high-intensity emitting medium such as high-energy lasers is required.
This article explores the technical aspects of quantum optics experiments with trapped ions, offering insights and exploring the latest developments in this rapidly evolving field at the forefront of quantum science.
Optical waveguides are specialized devices or mediums designed to confine and direct light propagation along a predetermined path, primarily in the form of optical signals or photons. These waveguides rely on the fundamental principles of electromagnetic theory to regulate the transmission and containment of light waves within their structures.
This article delves into the intricacies of interference patterns in wave optics and their applications in the field of spectroscopy.
Wavefront analysis is used extensively to measure and characterize the wavefront of light beams in different applications, including optical testing, microscopy, and high-resolution imaging. This article discusses wavefront analysis using wavefront sensors, advances in wavefront analysis, and the use of wavefront analysis for high-resolution imaging systems.
The utilization of specialized Infrared cameras consisting of infrared sensors to capture and develop the image of an object constitutes the process of thermal imaging. Our eyes detect visible light; however, the thermal radiation being emitted in the infrared region can only be detected by the cameras used for thermal imaging.
