Storing Light Here, and Retrieving It There

Lene Hau and her group are at it again!

After demonstrating a few years ago that they can stop light completely and then turn it back on, they have now exploited another aspect of quantum mechanics. In this new experiment, they have managed to store light in one BEC gas, and then have it retransmitted back using a second BEC gas! This is such a clever experiment.
