Cracking a Decades-Old Test, Researchers Bolster Case for Quantum Mechanics

The Optical Society (OSA)

At upcoming FiO + LS conference, researchers will discuss creative tactics to get rid of loopholes that have long confounded tests of quantum mechanics. With their innovative method, the researchers were able to demonstrate quantum interactions between two particles spaced more than 180 meters (590 feet) apart while eliminating the possibility that shared events during the past 11 years affected their interaction.

Dawn of the Quantum Internet, Secure Quantum Cryptography, and Harnessing Entanglement

The Optical Society (OSA)

Quantum technologies harness the unusual properties of the atomic and subatomic world, where the rules of classical physics do not apply. Properties like entanglement – what Einstein called “spooky action at a distance” – and superposition – where a single particle can exist in multiple states at once – provide remarkable opportunities to push current communications, cryptography, and computing technologies beyond their current limitations. But, what are the latest innovations in quantum research and where are new discoveries taking us?

Scientists Demonstrate High-Performing Room-Temperature Nanolaser

The Optical Society (OSA)

Scientists at Yokohama National University in Japan have built a highly efficient room-temperature nanometer-scale laser that produces stable, continuous streams of near-infrared laser light. Using only a microwatt of power, this nanolaser design should be useful in future miniaturized circuits containing optical devices.

"Optoelectronic Tweezers" Push Nanowires Around

The Optical Society (OSA)

In efforts that can improve studies of biological objects and the construction of nanotech materials, researchers at the University of California-Berkeley have invented "optoelectronic tweezers," a new way of controlling nanometer-scale objects. The research will be presented at the upcoming CLEO/QELS meeting in Baltimore.
