[Draft] A recent Caltech News article profiles some research in squeezed states of light. And why that is useful. • Wiki > Squeezed coherent state • Wiki > Squeezed states of light (quote) In quantum physics, light is in a squeezed state if its electric field strength Ԑ for some phases ϑ has a quantum… Continue reading What is ‘squeezed light’?
Today’s post is somewhat different than usual. I’m highlighting a YouTube channel. Communicating science to a general audience has a long history. The bibliography for my physics blog contains some books by authors to this purpose. Modern physics has many great stories, and the just plain strangeness of quantum physics lends itself to great storytelling.… Continue reading Communicating what physics says — The Science Asylum
