The symmetrization postulate asserts that the state of particular species of particles can only be of one permutation symmetry type: symmetric for bosons and antisymmetric for fermions. We report some experimental results showing that pairs of photons indistinguishable by all degrees of freedom can exhibit not only a bosonic behavior, as expected for photons, but also a surprisingly sharp fermionic behavior under speci c conditions. 

Entangled photons and antibunching phenomena revisited on the basis of various models for light

At what level of energy does a classical experiment become quantum mechanical? Where does classical electromagnetic theory apply and where do we have to turn to quantum optics? Is there a sharp line

Frequency and phase relations of entangled photons observed by a two-photon interference experiment

An entangled photon experiment has been performed with a large variation of the temperature of the non-linear crystal generating the entangled pair by spontaneous downconversion. The photon pairs are

On the Foundations of Eurhythmic Physics: A Brief Non Technical Survey

Eurhythmic Physics is a new approach to describe physical systems, where the concepts of rhythm, synchronization, inter-relational influence and non-linear emergence stand out as major concepts. The

8×8 Programmable Quantum Photonic Processor based on Silicon Nitride Waveguides

Integrated universal linear optical networks are essential for the development of quantum information processing (QIP). We demonstrate a universal, reconfigurable, 8×8 photonic processor based on

This review is the report of a single experimental protocol on the nature, structure and mechanical strength of 136 bone samples from the vertebral body of 9 subjects, which combined mechanical testing with density measurements, a study of some microarchitectural parameters and a biochemical analysis of bone collagen.
