Small step taken for quantum communication

By Ashley Yeager, 12:36 PM April 9, 2014

In two separate experiments, a single atom in an optical cavity has strongly interacted with a photon from a faint light pulse and switch the photon’s state. The results are a step toward creating quantum networks that could be used in quantum computing and quantum communication, researchers report April 9 in Nature.
