Quantum correlations make you never fail a test again
Researchers build fully mechanical phonon laser
New approach enhances quantum-based secure communication
University of Calgary scientists have overcome an 'Achilles' heel' of quantum-based secure communication systems, using a new approach that works in the real world to safeguard secrets.
Theorists predict new state of quantum matter may have big impact on electronics
Constantly losing energy is something we deal with in everything we do. If you stop pedaling a bike, it gradually slows; if you let off the gas, your car also slows. As these vehicles move, they also generate ...
Nuclear-atomic overlap for the isotope thorium-229
More than 99.9% of the mass of any atom is concentrated into a quadrillionth of its volume, the part occupied by the nucleus. Unimaginably small, dense and energetic, atomic nuclei are governed by laws quite ...
Quantum measurement carries information even when the measurement outcome is unread
Massive neutrinos and new standard cosmological model: No concordance yet
Neutrinos, also known as 'ghost particles' because they barely interact with other particles or their surroundings, are massless particles according to the standard model of particle physics. However, there ...
Engineers explain physics of fluids some 100 years after original discovery
Sunghwan Jung is a fan of the 19th Century born John William Strutt, 3rd, also known as Lord Baron Rayleigh. An English physicist, Rayleigh, along with William Ramsay, discovered the gas argon, an achievement ...
Scientists identify a mathematical 'crystal ball' that may predict calamities
Neuroscientists have come up with a mathematical equation that may help predict calamities such as financial crashes in economic systems and epileptic seizures in the brain.
'Photon glue' enables a new quantum mechanical state
(Phys.org) —Like a spring connecting two swings, light can act as photon glue that binds together the quantum mechanical properties of two vastly different materials.
Physicists propose molecular clock to expose new physics
Adhesion at 180,000 frames per second
Adhesion is an extremely important factor in living nature: insects can climb up walls, plants can twine up them, and cells are able to adhere to surfaces. During evolution, many of them developed mushroom-shaped ...
Foundations of carbon-based life leave little room for error
Life as we know it is based upon the elements of carbon and oxygen. Now a team of physicists, including one from North Carolina State University, is looking at the conditions necessary to the formation of ...
New study advances quest for better superconducting materials
Nearly 30 years after the discovery of high-temperature superconductivity, many questions remain, but an Oak Ridge National Laboratory team is providing insight that could lead to better superconductors.
