Photons are the smallest particles which carry units of electromagnetic energy, or light, and these units of energy rarely interact with each other. Coupling of the particles can occur within certain materials, at extremely high energy.

Light waves easily pass through each other without interfering with the other beam. Quantum technology, an emerging field that could revolutionize electronics, is dependent on the ability to influence one beam of light with another. Optical logic gates would become possible, as would the ability to ...
