Failing was fun: Japan Nobel winner
Nagoya, Japan (AFP) Oct 10, 2014
The hundreds of experimental failures that paved the road to winning the Nobel Prize for physics was fun, rather than frustration, one of this year's three Japanese-born laureates said Friday. Hiroshi Amano, 54, sat next to Isamu Akasaki, 85, his one-time mentor-professor, when they met the press at Nagoya University in central Japan days after they were honoured alongside Shuji Nakamura for inventing the blue LED. "I've never thought I wanted to quit in my research," Amano said. "I would always ... read more

Physicists teleport photon over 15 miles
Professor Nicolas Gisin and his team have successfully teleported a photon over 15 miles in its quantum state. The Swiss team of scientists aimed to transport the photon into a crystal without the two touching, and they did just that. The same team were able to accomplish this in 2003, but they were only able to teleport the light a little less than four miles. The reporting of the accomplishment can be found in the latest issue of Nature Photonics. ... more
