A team of MIT physicists, working with researchers from Louisiana State University (LSU) and Crystalline Mirror Solutions (CMS, now part of Thorlabs Inc.) has designed a quantum “light squeezer” capable of limiting quantum noise in laser beams. The system retains the full range of quantum mechanical properties at room temperature. Researchers demonstrated the ability to apply the system in a comparatively compact configuration, meaning they may be able to add the system to high-precision experiments that improve laser measurements in settings where quantum noise may otherwise be a restricting factor. The system’s name derives from the concept of quantum squeezing. This idea, that the uncertainty of a laser’s quantum…READ MORE
