  • Nobel Prize medal

    The 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded to Alain Aspect, John F. Clauser and Anton Zeilinger for their experiments exploring the nature of entangled photons, in particular tests of the Bell inequalities and the demonstration of quantum teleportation. To celebrate the prize, Springer-Nature has created a collection of seminal papers and relevant content from nature.com .

  • A single beamline interferometer with different two-photon N00N states is implemented through spatial tailoring of photon pairs. It enables the observation of the speed-up of the quantum Gouy phase — the phase acquired by the N-photon number state of paraxial modes upon propagation.

  • Nitrogen-vacancy centres in surface-engineered diamond are demonstrated to operate as charge-sensitive fluorescent reporters, enabling an optical scheme for voltage recording in physical and biological systems.

    Obituary
  • The 2022 Wolf Prize in Physics has been awarded to Paul Corkum, Anne L’Huillier and Ferenc Krausz for their pioneering contributions to ultrafast laser science. Nature Photonics spoke to them about the milestones, challenges and future opportunities for the field.

    Q&A
  • In order to simplify and streamline our processes, Nature Photonics is moving to a single format for its primary research submissions

    Editorial
  • A heat-powered emitter can sometimes exceed the Planck thermal-emission limit. We clarify when such super-Planckian emission is possible, arguing that far-field super-Planckian emission requires a distribution of energy that is not consistent with a unique temperature, and therefore the process should not be called ‘thermal emission’.
