Scientists may have found a way to establish a strong connection between two single photons with the help of a glass fiber. The new method could open up completely new possibilities for quantum optics.

Normally, two photons in free space don't interact. Light waves can pass through each other without having any influence on each other at all. For many applications in quantum technology, though, interaction between photons is crucial.
