    Identification of New 'Super Class' of Photons Could Lead to Breakthroughs in Brain Imaging

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A new super class of photons called “Majorana photons” could lead to enhanced information on quantum-level transition and imaging of the brain and its workings.

    City College of New York (CCNY) professor Robert R. Alfano, whose accomplishments include the discovery of supercontinuum and Cr tunable lasers, and his research group based their work on the fact that photons — while possessing salient properties of polarization, wavelength, coherence, and spatial modes — take on several forms.

    “Photons are amazing,” he said. “The key is not all photons are the same.”

    According to Alfano, the team’s focus “was to use a ‘special super form’ of photons, which…
