The results of the study published in Physical Review Letters provide the first example of long-distance communication between two quantum optical antennas in analogy to the 19th century experiments of Hertz and Marconi with radio antennas.
Only a few meters, but what a breakthrough!
Gee, we were once looking forward to wristwatch-size radios.
Does the above require a near-absolute-zero temperature to operate?
Yes. Just read the article. 1.5 kelvin (-272 centigrade).
Thanx, Tony. We may have a pea-size supercomputer...attached to a rather large and costly cooling unit.
Hey - that's awesome!
