St Andrews researcher’s results launch a new Open Access journal

Published in Volume 1, Issue 1 of APL Photonics the paper is co-authored by Professor Sven Höfling of the Quantum Physics and Quantum Engineering Group in the School of Physics and Astronomy.

Sven works in the exciting area of quantum engineering and its applications and his paper describes a record efficiency electrically-driven efficient light source that could be used in quantum communication systems for secure data exchange. Sven commented “We are delighted that our article has contributed to launch this new journal that makes an important contribution to the photonics community”.
