Atomistic structure of an artificial atom that could be used to produce light with vibrationally supressed fluctuations for quantum-enhanced sensors. Gerhard Klimeck, Insoo Woo, Muhammad Usman, David S. Ebert (2011), "Self-Assembled Quantum Dot Wave Structure,"

Quantum sensors with ultra-high precision

Atoms emit light in the form discrete packets called photons. If measured, these separate packets lead to particularly profound changes in its brightness, as...

Physicists analyze rotational dynamics of galaxies and influence of the photon mass

The rotating stars in our galaxy are puzzling as same as our milky way. Various scientists have suggested that the orbital speeds of stars...

Physicists create a quantum refrigerator that cools with an absence of light

For the first time ever, a team of scientists managed to cool an object with the absence of light. The method, which has never...

Student engineers an interaction between two qubits using photons

In computers, binary digits interact and hand off data for processing. Similarly in quantum computing, qubits i.e., quantum bits must interact to process the data. But...
A new method to make single photon

A new method to make single photon

Light is a rich wellspring of data. It can shift in color, force, polarization and short or long flashes. Light, as a rule, comprises...
