‘Indistinguishable Photons’ Key to Advancing Quantum Technologies

Indistinguishable photons are critical for quantum information processing, and a group of researchers in Japan is tapping nitrogen impurity centers found within gallium arsenide to generate them -- making a significant contribution toward realizing a large number of indistinguishable single-photon sources.

Scientists Watch a Molecule Protect Itself From Radiation Damage

Angewandte_Chemie_cover6.jpg

When DNA is hit with ultraviolet light, it can lose excess energy from radiation by ejecting the core of a hydrogen atom — a single proton — to keep other chemical bonds in the system from breaking. To gain insight into this process, researchers used X-ray laser pulses from the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory to investigate how energy from light transforms a relatively simple molecule, 2-thiopyridone.

Robotic-assisted cardiac and thoracic surgery pairs a surgeon’s skills with advanced robotic technology. Surgeons use minimally invasive techniques, meaning large surgical incisions are not required. The technology translates the surgeon’s hand, wrist and finger movements into precise, real-time movements of surgical instruments inside the patient.
