Forbidden quantum leaps possible with high-resolution spectroscopy
A new twist on an old tool lets scientists use light to study and control matter with 1,000 times better resolution and precision than previously possible.
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 ...
Could classical theory be just as weird as quantum theory?
No Big Bang? Quantum equation predicts universe has no beginning
Quantum many-body systems on the way back to equilibrium
Considering that one cubic centimetre of matter already contains about 1019 to 1023 particles, it is hard to imagine that physicists nowadays can prepare ensembles comprising only some hundred, or even just ...
Exotic states materialize with supercomputers
Scientists used supercomputers to find a new class of materials that possess an exotic state of matter known as the quantum spin Hall effect. The researchers published their results in the journal Science in Dec ...
Scientists create never-before-seen form of matter
Harvard and MIT scientists are challenging the conventional wisdom about light, and they didn't need to go to a galaxy far, far away to do it.
Correlations of quantum particles help in distinguishing physical processes
Communication security and metrology could be enhanced through a study of the role of quantum correlations in the distinguishability of physical processes, by researchers at the Universities of Strathclyde ...
Popper's experiment realized again—but what does it mean?
Superposition revisited: Proposed resolution of double-slit experiment paradox using Feynman path integral formalism
Physicists propose superabsorption of light beyond the limits of classical physics
Physicists design zero-friction quantum engine
On quantum scales, there are many second laws of thermodynamics
New research from UCL and the Universities of Gdansk, Singapore, and Delft has uncovered additional second laws of thermodynamics which complement the ordinary second law of thermodynamics, one of the most ...
