Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) used quantum optics to advance state-of-the-art microscopy and, in doing so, chart a a path to detecting material properties with greater sensitivity than is possible with traditional tools.
The quantum microscope uses nonlinear amplifiers to generate a special quantum light source known as squeezed light.
“We showed how to use squeezed light — a workhorse of quantum information science — as a practical resource for microscopy,” said Ben Lawrie of ORNL’s Materials Science and Technology Division, who led the research with Raphael Pooser of ORNL’s Computational Sciences and Engineering Division. “We…READ MORE
