thank you Colin, but years away from what...I am still not clear of commercial use of this technology...understanding fundamental science is great but making something useful would be great too

Squeezed light is pretty cutting edge and years from commercialization, but it has helped make the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) more sensitive.
