By emitting photons from a quantum dot at the top of a micropyramid, researchers at Linköping University are creating a polarized light source for such things as energy-saving computer screens and wiretap-proof communications.
A team of scientists led by Austrian physicist Anton Zeilinger has conducted a potentially groundbreaking experiment with photons by closing an important loophole.
Electronic computing speeds are currently hovering around raw limits imposed by the laws of physics.
A new laser system captures the behavior of individual photons and uses advanced optics to deduce what's around the corner.
Chinese scientists have smashed the distance record for quantum teleportation, zapping entangled photons over 60 miles.
MIT's created a camera that can capture a trillion frames a second - the ultimate in slow motion, say its developers.
A group of physicists at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) say they've proved that single photons cannot travel faster than the speed of light in vacuum, effectively putting the kibosh on the idea of time travel.
Physicists from the University of Bonn have developed a completely new source of light, previously thought to be impossible - a so-called Bose-Einstein condensate consisting of photons.
