Stacking the Deck: Single Photons Observed at Seemingly Faster-than-Light Speeds (1 of 2)

Caption: A single photon travels through alternating layers of low (blue) and high (green) refractive index material more slowly (top) or quickly (bottom) depending upon the order of the layers. A strategically placed additional layer (bottom) can dramatically reduce photon transit time.
