How does order emerge?

German scientists from the MPQ, LMU, and the FUB analyze how fast order can appear in a quantum-mechanical system.

Quantum mechanic frequency filter for atomic clocks

Atomic clocks are the most accurate clocks in the world. In an atomic clock, electrons jumping from one orbit to another decides the clock's frequency. To get the electrons to jump, researchers shine light ...

New research signals big future for quantum radar

A prototype quantum radar that has the potential to detect objects which are invisible to conventional systems has been developed by an international research team led by a quantum information scientist at the University ...

Physicists find a new form of quantum friction

Physicists at Yale University have observed a new form of quantum friction that could serve as a basis for robust information storage in quantum computers in the future. The researchers are building upon ...
