Photon router sets stage for quantum computers

In an effort to overcome the difficulties in building quantum computers, scientists have developed a photonic router - a quantum device based on a single atom that enables routing of single photons (particles of light).

Natural evolution inspires more efficient organic solar cells

A geometrically-patterned light scattering layer designed by McCormick researchers could make solar cells more efficient and less expensive.

There`s no such thing as empty space!

Scientists claim to have produced particles of light out of vacuum, proving that space is not empty.
