Quantum optics with microwaves

Physicists at ETH Zurich have demonstrated one of the quintessential effects of quantum optics - known as the Hong-Ou-Mandel effect - with microwaves, whose frequency is 100000 times lower than that of visible light. The experiment takes quantum optics into a new frequency regime and could eventually lead to new technological applications.
