Exploiting the unusual optical properties of very small objects, quantum-based technologies are starting to revolutionize lasers, solar cells, communications and more. Smaller is often better, as it frequently can reduce the size and weight of gear while cutting power consumption and boosting performance. However, going small requires photonics innovations in the form of new materials, manufacturing techniques, configurations and other factors. Examples can be seen in innovations based upon quantum effects, the sometimes spooky rules that govern the very smallest objects. A case...Read full article
