Nature Photonics article receives media coverage

We recently published an article in the journal Nature Photonics that demonstrates a method to directly measure a polarization quantum state using weak measurements. This article received the following coverage in the media:

The National Post (Canada): "Canadian researchers take a sneak peek at Schrödinger’s Cat and a step toward a quantum computer"

Science Recorder: "Scientists discover a way around Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle"

TGDaily: "Schrödinger's Cat could be visible after all"

Photonics Online: "Research Breakthrough: uOttawa Physicist Makes First Direct Measurements Of Quantum States Of Light"

Physics World: "First weak measurements made on optical polarization states"
