POLARBEAR detects B-modes in the cosmic microwave background
San Diego CA (SPX) Oct 23, 2014
Cosmologists have made the most sensitive and precise measurements yet of the polarization of the cosmic microwave background. The report, published in the Astrophysical Journal, marks an early success for POLARBEAR, a collaboration of more than 70 scientists using a telescope high in Chile's Atacama desert designed to capture the universe's oldest light. "It's a really important milestone," said Kam Arnold, the corresponding author of the report who has been working on the instrument for a decade ... 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
