Quantum Dots Deliver Photons One At A Time

Abstract:
A National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) scientist has demonstrated efficient production of single photons - the smallest pulses of light - at the highest temperatures reported for the photon source used. The advance is a step toward practical, ultrasecure quantum communications, as well as useful for certain types of metrology.
