Spooky but tiny: scientists unveil new quantum light source

A key element for future quantum technology is a step closer with the unveiling of a tiny quantum light source, less than one hundredth the diameter of a hair thick. The device’s practical qualities will make it a valuable component for future...

Unleashing the superpowers of materials with the flash of a laser

Scientists have devised a way to reveal the superpowers of a crystal, with a mere flash of laser light. The superpowers in question, known as topological phases of light, include the ability to guide light along winding paths perfectly with no loss,...

A step closer to a data superhighway for future internet

An international team of researchers led by ANU is helping to build a safe data superhighway for the highly anticipated quantum internet, which promises a new era of artificial intelligence and ultra-secure communication. Associate Professor Andrey Sukhorukov...

Tiny camera lens may help link quantum computers to network

An international team of researchers led by The Australian National University (ANU) has invented a tiny camera lens, which may lead to a device that links quantum computers to an optical fibre network. Quantum computers promise a new era in ultra-secure...
