Quantum detectors used in research projects that form the basis of this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics were created by Professor Val Zwiller’s research group at KTH.
“Quantum teleportation has huge potential for society to save energy in the future. Information transfer over the internet using quantum technology, for example, requires just one photon rather than millions,” says Zwiller.
This year’s Nobel Laureate’s physics experiments have laid the foundation for the phenomenon of ‘nonlocality’, i.e. the fact that, say, two light particles (photons) that were once entangled in the same source can ‘sense’ what is happening to the other even at a distance. This phenomenon is called quantum teleportation.
