The quantum of Light or any other form of electromagnetic radiation is photon. Photon is an elementary particle and exhibits both wave-particle duality and exhibits the properties of both waves and particle. Two photons in free space do not interact. However at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien), researchers were able to make the two photons react by using an ultra thin glass fiber. This discovery will have wide applications in quantum technology.

Two photons in space do not interact with one another but pass through each other without having any effect on each other at all. However for many applications in Quantum technology, interface or interaction between photons are central. . It is an obligatory qualification for transmitting informatio...
