Photons open the gateway for quantum networks

Quantum technology based on photons, called quantum photonics, will be able to hold much more information than current computer technology. But in order to create a network with photons, you need a photon contact, a kind of transistor that can control the transport of photons in a circuit. Researchers now have managed to create such a contact.

Manipulating wrinkles could lead to graphene semiconductors

Scientists have used the tip of a scanning tunneling microscope to manipulate the formation of wrinkles in graphene, opening the way to the construction of graphene semiconductors not through chemical means but by manipulating the carbon structure itself in a form of 'graphene engineering'.
