On this month's show, we discover that teleporting is more than just science fiction - that's according to physicists at the University of Jena in Germany who have, for the first time, demonstrated that teleportation of elementary particles is actually possible. Photonics Media Managing Editor Michael Wheeler discusses technology inspired by the biological systems of octopuses and other cephalopods; and he offers a preview of the upcoming April issue of Photonics Spectra. We also learn how the photonics industry in Rochester, N.Y., is continuing to expand.
