New York Physicists Program Nanolight

A quantum physicist team affiliated with the Max Planck–New York City Center for Nonequilibrium Quantum Phenomena recently developed a novel platform capable of controlling light at a nanoscale wavelength. They manipulated the light by programming a layered crystal’s electromagnetic response. Other than controlling nanolight itself, this discovery can potentially lead to new quantum information processing and imaging capabilities.
