Photons open the gateway for quantum networks

23 octubre 2015

There is tremendous potential for new information technology based on light (photons). Quantum technology based on photons — called quantum photonics, will be able to hold much more information than current computer technology. But in order to create a network with photons, you need a photon contact, a kind of transistor that can control the transport of photons in a circuit. Researchers have managed to create such a contact.
