Scientists can now “see” things without “looking” at them using a new quantum technique

“We also demonstrated that even very low-power microwave pulses can be detected efficiently using our protocol.”

A team of scientists has devised a means of using quantum mechanics to “view” objects indirectly. The new method could improve measurements for quantum computers and other systems. It brings together the quantum and classical worlds.

We “see” things via the complex interaction of light photons within specialized cells in the retina of our eyes. However, some scientists have speculated that a similar phenomenon could be replicated without photo-absorption or without any light.
