Effective reflection of light for quantum technology

23 September 2016

Effective reflection of light for quantum technologyResearchers at the Niels Bohr Institute have developed a new method where they create a very strong interaction between light and atoms, which means that the light can be controlled and reflected on a glass fiber.
