Australian research helping self-driving cars get on the road

Researchers from the Australian National University and TMOS, an Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence, have developed a highly sensitive self-powered single photon detector that could be used to make self-driving cars safer and more energy efficient. A fast, single-photon Light Detection And Ranging (LIDAR) is far more sensitive than other forms of LIDARs, allowing […]

Generating entangled photons with nonlinear metasurfaces

Illustration of a metasurface generating pairs of photons (shown as spheres).  The photon entanglement can be varied by changing the pump beam (shown in red). Illustration by Andrei Komar & Matthew Parry. Subhed: A new method for generating quantum-entangled photon pairs employs nonlinear metasurfaces to enhance and tailor photon emissions—an important step towards creating miniaturized […]
