Researchers capture image of light as both wave and particle

Sigma Xi SmartBrief | Mar 03, 2015

Researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology have developed a technique to photograph light acting as a wave and a particle. "This experiment demonstrates that, for the first time ever, we can film quantum mechanics -- and its paradoxical nature -- directly. Being able to image and control quantum phenomena at the nanometer scale like this opens up a new route towards quantum computing," said research team leader Fabrizio Carbone. Newsweek (03/02)
