two photon

When a #photon (usually #polarized #laser #light) passes through matter, it will be absorbed by an #electron. Eventually, and spontaneously, the electron will return to its ground state by emitting the photon. Certain crystal structures increase the likelihood that the photon will split into two photons(Your Brain Is A Crystal Receiver), both of them with longer wavelengths than the original. Keep in mind that a longer #wavelength means a lower frequency, and thus less energy. The total energy of the two photons must equal the energy of the photon originally fired from the laser (conservation of energy).When the original photon splits into two photons, the resulting photon pair is considered 
#entangled.The process of using certain #crystals to split incoming photons into pairs of photons is called #parametric down-conversion. Normally the photons exit the crystal such that one is aligned in a horizontally polarized light cone, the other aligned vertically. By adjusting the experiment, the horizontal and vertical light cones can be made to overlap. Even though the polarization of the individual photons is unknown, the nature of quantum mechanics predicts they differ. You can take 2 entangled photons and separate them by infinite distance and when you change the information in one the other photon is changed instantly. This gives the illusion that information is traveling faster than the speed of light, when in reality the information travels instantly because #distance is an #illusion. At the most fundamental level #WE are all made of #photons. ALL matter and particles are STILL connected and information can be transferred instantly #bypassing space and time.

Mutually tangled colloidal knots and induced defect loops in nematic fields 

Colloidal dispersions in liquid crystals can serve as asoft-matter toolkit for the self-assembly of composite materials with pre-engineered properties and structures that are highly dependent on particle-induced topological defects1, 2, 3. Here, we demonstrate that bulk and surface defects in nematic fluids can be patterned by tuning the topology of colloidal particles dispersed in them. In particular, by taking advantage of two-photon photopolymerization techniques to make knot-shaped microparticles, we show that the interplay of the topologies of the knotted particles, the nematic field and the induced defects leads to knotted, linked and other topologically non-trivial field configurations

The way you entangle them is to send them onto a half-silvered mirror, It reflects half of the photons, and transmits half. If you send two photons, one to the right and one to the left, then each of the two photons have forgotten where they come from. They lose their identities and become entangled. The idea is to create two particle pairs, send one to one computer, the other to another, Then if these two photons are entangled, the computers could use them to exchange information.

Take a look at a living taste bud. The green objects are the taste receptor cells, red indicates blood vessels and blue is the collagen structure surrounding the bud. This is one of more than 2,000 taste buds scattered across the top of the tongue.

This 3-D rendering was part of a study at Harvard, the Australian National University and South Korea’s Sungkyunkwan University in which scientists captured the process of taste sensation live. In doing so, they provided more proof that the idea the tongue is broken into separate regions that sense salty, sour, sweet, bitter and umami is a myth.

They were able to watch taste reception by shining an infrared laser on a living mouse’s tongue and recording with a two-photon microscope what happened when they dripped sweet-tasting saccharin and acesulfame K or salt onto the buds. Each bud activated when exposed to both salty and sweet substances.

“With this new imaging tool we have shown that each taste bud contains taste cells for different tastes,” said Harvard Medical School’s Seok-Hyun Yun. Learn more and see photos below.

LHC sees hint of boson heavier than Higgs
Tantalizing first results from upgraded collider will be followed up within a year.

The two experiments that discovered the Higgs boson in 2012 have sensed an intriguing if very preliminary whiff of a possible new elementary particle. Both collaborations announced their observations on 15 December, as they released their first significant results since completing a major upgrade earlier this year.

The results largely matched a rumour that has circulated on social media and blogs for several days: that both the CMS and ATLAS detectors at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) outside Geneva, Switzerland, have seen in the debris of proton-proton collisions an unexpected excess of pairs of photons carrying around 750 giga electronvolts (GeV) of energy combined. This could be a tell-tale sign of a new particle — also a boson, but not necessarily similar to the Higgs — decaying into two photons of equal mass. It would be about four times more massive than the next heaviest particle discovered so far, the top quark, and six times more massive than the Higgs.

Keep in mind that this has not been confirmed yet, and it could be a statistical anomaly, but regardless this is very interesting. Hopefully in the near future more data can confirm whether this result holds true; if so it could represent a big discovery in particle physics.

Me answering homework questions like:

11.Photon A has twice the energy of Photon B. How do the energies of the two photons compare?

 A: Please consult the first half of this question as it blatantly states the answer.


I legitimately turned in my paper with that answer.
