Light not only plays a key role as an information carrier for optical computer chips, but also in particular for the next generation of quantum computers.
The research team led by Prof. PENG Xinhua from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the collaborators, achieved for the first time the experimental quantum superradiant phase transition (SPT) beyond no-go theorem by introducing anti-squeezing.
If spilled coffee is not immediately wiped off, it leaves behind a stain where the edges are darker than the rest. This phenomenon is called the coffee ring effect.
Over the past several decades, researchers have moved from using electric currents to manipulating light waves in the near-infrared range for telecommunications applications such as high-speed 5G networks, biosensors on a chip, and driverless cars.
As a kid, were you ever curious to know what lice looked like from really close by- Or even a mosquito- To do this you would definitely need to use a microscope, in order to observe all the complex structures of these insects.
Integrated quantum photonics (IQP) is a promising platform for realizing scalable and practical quantum information processing.
The thinnest materials in the world are only a single atom thick. These kinds of two-dimensional or 2D materials – such as graphene, well-known as consisting of a single layer of carbon atoms – are causing a great deal of excitement among research teams worldwide.
When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down experiments at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory early last year, Shambhu Ghimire's research group was forced to find another way to study an intriguing research target.
By implementing a new signal stabilization technique, researchers were able to achieve secure quantum communication over a record 605 kilometers of fiber using the twin-field quantum key distribution protocol.
Light offers an irreplaceable way to interact with our universe. It can travel across galactic distances and collide with our atmosphere, creating a shower of particles that tell a story of past astronomical events.
