  1. Quantum circuits with a levitated heart

    A collaboration between London Light researchers and the University of Duissburg-Essen has found a way to strengthen quantum networks by levitating key components, whilst simultaneously exploring the boundaries of quantum mechanics. 


    Do you believe in quantum physics? Quantum theory …

  3. Nobel laureate tells how to beat his own award-winning imaging technique

    In the 1990s an optical imaging technique emerged that overturned the “diffraction limit”, which for over a century had defined the maximum achievable resolution an optical microscope could achieve at around half the wavelength of the illuminating light. At King’s College London’s Wheatstone…

  4. Quantum light at the nanoscale

    Optical realisation of a quantum computer, secure quantum communications and imaging requires fast and reliable generation of single photons and their quantum superpositions. Future quantum optical sources should be small as they will need to be integrated into future photonics devices so that…

  6. Photonic skyrmions discovered

    Skyrmions, ‘hedgehogs’ of electron spins, are well known in magnetic materials and were long considered for applications in spintronics and high-density data storage. However, electromagnetic waves also carry spin and orbital angular momenta. In a recent paper, the team of researchers from…
