  Weizmann Institute scientists have demonstrated for the first time a photonic router – a quantum device based on a single atom that enables routing of single photons by single photons. This achievement, <a href="http://www.sciencemag.org/content/early/2014/07/09/science.1254699.full?sid=455c28ba-9013-4c79-8e9d-2584ec348ec7">as reported in Science magazine</a>, is another step toward overcoming the difficulties in building quantum computers.<br><br><a href="http://wis-wander.weizmann.ac.il/the-world%E2%80%99s-first-photonic-router#.U8VEKPldXPZ">READ MORE ON WEIZMANN INSTITUTE</a>
