Photon counting: Avalanche inspiration
13 Dec | Nature PhotonicsFull Text External Link Indicator
The ability of a customized avalanche-photodiode detector to distinguish the exact number of photons that it receives will simplify the tools required to perform reliable experiments in quantum optics.

Quantum information: An integrated light circuit
13 Sep | NatureFull Text External Link Indicator
There's a long wish list for a workable quantum computer: a viable system must be fast, compact and stable. The first integrated optical quantum logic circuits are a step in the right direction.

Quantum optics: Beyond single-photon counting
30 Aug | Nature PhotonicsFull Text External Link Indicator
The ability to distinguish how many photons comprise a particular state of light leads to significant benefits in practical quantum information processing and quantum cryptography. Superconducting nanostructures provide an effective solution at telecom wavelengths.

Metamaterials: A tunable terahertz response
30 Aug | Nature PhotonicsFull Text External Link Indicator
The ability to tune the resonant frequency of a metamaterial in the terahertz region will help to overcome some of the limitations of customary designs demonstrated so far. The result could be a new breed of active, frequency-agile devices that are controlled by light.

Quantum computation: The dreamweaver's abacus
06 Jun | NatureFull Text External Link Indicator
Some experts think that a quantum computation could be plaited like a skein of string. And now they may have found the sorts of string they need.

Physicists have 'solved' mystery of levitation
05 Jun | TelegraphFull Text External Link Indicator
"Levitation has been elevated from being pure science fiction to science fact, according to a study reported today by physicists."

The universe is a string-net liquid
17 May | New ScientistFull Text External Link Indicator
In 1998, just after he won a share of the Nobel prize for physics, Robert Laughlin of Stanford University in California was asked how his discovery of "particles" with fractional charge, now called quasi-particles, would affect the lives of ordinary people. "It probably won't," he said, "unless people are concerned about how the universe works."

Satellite Company Offers Earth-Observing Researchers a Ride
09 Mar | ScienceFull Text External Link Indicator
Satellite communications company Iridium is offering space on its next-generation fleet of 66 satellites for researchers to do earth observation. But the $1.6 billion price tag could prove a bit too steep.
