A matter of matter: Demonstrating destructive quantum interference using Bose-Einstein condensates
Heads or tails: Experimental quantum coin flipping cryptography performs better than classical protocols
The quest for true randomness and uncrackable codes
Quantum cryptography is said to be uncrackable. It will stay safe, but only if true randomness, the generation and use of intrinsically random numbers, can be achieved.
New analysis eliminates a potential speed bump in quantum computing
A quantum particle can search for an item in an unsorted "database" by jumping from one item to another in superposition, and it does so faster than a classical computer ever could.
Fast and curious: Electrons hurtle into the interior of a new class of quantum materials
As smartphones get smarter and computers compute faster, researchers actively search for ways to speed up the processing of information. Now, scientists at Princeton University have made a step forward in ...
Researchers find nondestructive method to study quantum wave systems
The laws of classical physics that describe the world around us can be very different from those of the quantum world. At the quantum level, particles can behave more like waves that can pass through each ...
Quantum correlations make you never fail a test again
Tricking the uncertainty principle
(Phys.org) —Caltech researchers have found a way to make measurements that go beyond the limits imposed by quantum physics.
Quantum simulator gives clues about magnetism
Assembling the puzzles of quantum materials is, in some ways, like dipping a wire hanger into a vat of soapy water, says CIFAR (Canadian Institute for Advanced Research) Fellow Joseph Thywissen (University ...
The road to quantum computing
Anticipating the advent of the quantum computer, related mathematical methods already provide insight into conventional computer science.
NPL, Dstl present potential 'billion global market' in quantum technologies
The Ministry of Defence's (MOD) Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) will today present a number of research projects to bring to market the science behind the world's most accurate atomic clocks. ...
UChicago to lead quantum engineering research team
The University of Chicago's Institute for Molecular Engineering will lead a team of researchers from five universities in an ambitious five-year, $6.75 million project to create a new class of quantum devices ...
Breakthrough paper on the Aharonov-Bohm effect published
Chapman University affiliated quantum physicist Yutaka Shikano, Ph.D., has published a milestone paper in the journal Nature Communications. The title of the article is "Aharonov-Bohm effect with quantum tunnel ...
Rare earth ions in a crystal become candidate for a quantum memory
(Phys.org) —A promising material is lining itself up as a candidate for a quantum memory. A team at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlangen is the first to succeed in performing high-resolution ...
