A particle of light from the single photon source (below) is stored in the vapor cell (above). A simultaneously emitted second photon is revealed by a detector (right), which triggers the control laser pulse and thereby initiates the storage process.

Photo storage in a quantum memory for steam cells in ground condition

Single photons are ideal carriers of quantum information, especially because they are fast, they barely interact with the environment or each other, and large-scale infrastructure for their distribution is already widely available. Now, before networks can really turn quantum, suitable quantum memories are needed for single photons. It is required for everything from buffer communication …

Raising 2,000 generations of bacteria may have solved this great debate in biology

Since the dawn of genetics in the early 20th century, biologists have debated if evolution is more driven by random mutations or by the original diversity in the gene pool. Having many genetic alternatives to choose from can make natural selection much faster in the beginning, but do the genetic mutations that occur over time …
