Researchers from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology and Tel Aviv University have developed an innovative method to engineer quantum entanglement in a crystal by using computational learning tools Quantum optics has proven to be an invaluable resource for the realization of many quantum technologies, such as quantum communication, computing, and cryptography. In the past decade, physics and optics have benefitted greatly from the surge of machine learning-aided research, which has led to novel predictions, experiments, and discoveries.
An illustration of the spatiotemporal imaging of 2D polariton wavepackets using an ultrafast electron microscope, following the recent publication of Kurman et al. from the Kaminer lab in Science. In the video, we show how we generated a wavepacket of 2D-light and how free-electrons in a pump-probe setup are used to probe the whole evolution of a polariton wavepacket from its creation until its decay. https://youtu.be/iYvXxTK_o5k  
Branched flow is a universal wave phenomenon where waves form channels of enhance intensity that keep diving as they propagate, forming a beautiful pattern resembling...
