    Parity–time symmetry in second quantization is demonstrated in an integrated non-Hermitian coupled waveguide structure. A counterintuitive shift of the position of the Hong–Ou–Mandel dip is observed in integrated lossy waveguide structures.

    Front-induced transitions have been used in dispersion-engineered waveguides for frequency conversion, optical delays, and bandwidth and pulse duration manipulation. This Review provides a theoretical description of the subject and highlights the potential for light manipulation in guided optics.

    Using graphene as the ‘metal’ layer can increase the localization accuracy of metal-induced energy transfer, enabling axial localization of single emitters and measurement of the thickness of lipid bilayers with ångström accuracy.

    The quantum-delayed choice experiment is implemented with multiple entangled photons under Einstein’s locality condition. The wave–particle quantum superposition is realized by controlling the relative phase between the wave and particle states.

    A violation of bilocal inequality is demonstrated with two truly independent light sources delivering entanglements to three nodes. To this end, the locality, measurement independence and quantum source independence loopholes are closed simultaneously.

    Modulation of light by external waves is an essential function in any photonics-based system. Using an integrated plasmonic approach, the speed of modulation of 1.55-μm waves has now been extended to the ‘low’ THz band.
