Physicists unveil the condensation of liquid light in a semiconductor one-atom-thick

Posted by in categories: computing, particle physics, quantum physics

An international team of physicists has shown experimentally for the first time how a Bose-Einstein condensate — tens of thousands of quanta of ‘liquid light’ — is formed in the thinnest monatomic film of a semiconductor crystal. The team includes the head of the Spin Optics Laboratory at St Petersburg University, Professor Alexey Kavokin. This discovery will help create new types of lasers capable of producing qubits — the main integral parts of quantum computers of the future.
