'Spooky action at a distance' aboard the ISS
(Phys.org) —Albert Einstein famously described quantum entanglement as "spooky action at distance"; however, up until now experiments that examine this peculiar aspect of physics have been limited to relatively ...
Feynman's double-slit experiment brought to life
(Phys.org) —The precise methodology of Richard Feynman's famous double-slit thought-experiment – a cornerstone of quantum mechanics that showed how electrons behave as both a particle and a wave – has ...

New scheme for quantum computing
(Phys.org) —Tom Wong, a graduate student in physics and David Meyer, professor of mathematics at the University of California, San Diego, have proposed a new algorithm for quantum computing, that will speed ...
A Whirling Dervish puts physicists in a spin
A force that intricately links the rotation of the Earth with the direction of weather patterns in the atmosphere has been shown to play a crucial role in the creation of the hypnotic patterns created by ...
Physicists find a way to study coldest objects in the universe
They are the coldest objects in the Universe and are so fragile that even a single photon can heat and destroy them.
Power grid upgrades may cause blackouts, warns Braess's paradox
Classical physics shown to be equal to quantum theory when it comes to unusual experiments with light beams
Quantum mechanics provides such a different description of the world compared to classical physics that even Albert Einstein had problems comprehending the implications of the theory. However, sometimes the ...
Simulation sets atoms shivering
(Phys.org) —In "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" (JK Rowling, 1997), Harry, Ron, and Hermione encounter a massive stone chessboard, one of many obstacles in their path. To advance, they must play, ...
