Nanotechnology

Novel materials for improved photon upconversion
A new solid-state-like material contains nanocellulose capsules embedded within a matrix of nanofibers, and can operate for long periods in a dry oxygen-rich atmosphere.

An optical resonator coupled to a single atom enables a medium that provides the maximum nonlinear phase shift of pi at the single-photon level, offering new possibilities for quantum technology.
