Sensor Turns Faintest Radio Waves into Laser Signals

The supersensitive device holds promise for medical imaging and quantum networks
Physicists have found a way to detect faint radio waves and convert them directly into signals that can be transmitted by fiber optics. The discovery could improve the sensitivity of detectors used in magnetic resonance imaging and radio astronomy, and help to connect future quantum computers into a network.

Radio-wave receivers use antennas to pick up radiation. The incoming waves resonate with the antenna
