Researchers have unveiled a way to test if photons display “spooky action at a distance” despite photon loss, paving the way to a secure quantum internet.
Swiss researchers have successfully entangled 16 million atoms with a single photon, but macroscopic results are a long way off. Michael Lucy reports.
A quantum relay race.
Physicists from the University of Basel have developed a memory that can store photons. These quantum particles travel at the speed of light and are thus suitable for high-speed data transfer. The researchers were able to store them in an atomic vapor and read them
Medical techniques for looking inside our bodies have come a long way, but in the future it looks like doctors may be able to see absolutely everything going on under our skin.
Experiment hints we sense light’s tiniest specks “at the threshold of imagination”
A close look at data from the Large Hadron Collider finds no evidence that the Higgs boson decays into a new, unknown particle.
