Researchers at Stevens Institute of Technology created a 3D imaging system that uses light’s quantum properties to create images 40,000 times crisper than current technologies. The research could allow for better lidar sensing and detection, satellite mapping systems, deep-space communications, and medical imaging of the human retina.

The technology is the first real-world demonstration of single-photon noise reduction using a method called quantum parametric mode sorting, or QPMS, which was first proposed by…
