Quantum Photonic Molecule Laser Patent is Granted

Conventional lasers output coherent states of single photons. A couple of years ago, we predicted that photons can form bound states — the photonics molecules, which is a new type of quantum photonic states. Loosely speaking, we quantum mechanically glue two red photons together so that the two-photon group behaves like a green photon in […]
