How to use photon in a sentence
In a paper published last week in Science, the researchers describe firing a single photon at one of their qubits, which reflects it and in the process becomes entangled with it.Connecting Distant Qubits Just Brought Distributed Quantum Computing Closer|Edd Gent|February 8, 2021|Singularity Hub
The photons were sent to two locations a kilometer apart, researchers from Nanjing University in China report in a study to appear in Physical Review Letters.
A second layer with a slightly different chemical makeup creates a reflective barrier that will prevent photons from escaping as they bounce down the pipe, which acts as a waveguide.
Determining where the photons end up requires solving a mess of equations brimming with unknowns.New Quantum Computer in China Claims Quantum Advantage With Light|Jason Dorrier|December 6, 2020|Singularity Hub
Finally, the number of photons in each of the network’s output channels is measured at the end.The new light-based quantum computer Jiuzhang has achieved quantum supremacy|Emily Conover|December 3, 2020|Science News
When the gamma rays enter the sleeve, they interact with that photon gas, annihilating into electron-positron pairs.
Gregory Breit and John Archibald Wheeler first predicted this photon-photon annihilation in 1934.
The medicine worked because the photon–the quantum bundle of light and the carrier of the electromagnetic force–has no mass.Finding Higgs Boson, or God Particle, Will Resolve Scientific Mysteries|Frank Close|December 17, 2011|DAILY BEAST
Among his pastimes was designing a solar-power car, the Photon Torpedo.
Or, the photon may be retained for a while and emitted again relatively unchanged—the effect observed in luminous paint.
"I think I am getting somewhere on my photon-neutrino-electron interchange-cycle," he announced.
Or there may be an inelastic collision, when the photon hits an atom and knocks out an electron—the old photoelectric effect.
"Well, you know what happens when a photon comes in contact with the atomic structure of matter," Kato said.
There were hundreds of scintillations, each caused by a nuclear particle or photon striking the screen.The Blue Ghost Mystery|Harold Leland Goodwin
