Not all quantum properties are lost through interaction with the environment
Physicists prove Heisenberg's intuition correct
An international team of scientists has provided proof of a key feature of quantum physics – Heisenberg's error-disturbance relation - more than 80 years after it was first suggested.
Research team challenges the limits of famous quantum principle
(Phys.org) —A team of physicists is challenging the very limits of Heisenberg's famous uncertainty principle by measuring quantum particles with unprecedented accuracy.
New material for quantum computing discovered out of the blue
A common blue pigment used in the £5 note could have an important role to play in the development of a quantum computer, according to a paper published today in the journal Nature.
Team finds elusive quantum transformations near absolute zero
Heat drives classical phase transitions—think solid, liquid, and gas—but much stranger things can happen when the temperature drops. If phase transitions occur at the coldest temperatures imaginable, ...
Quantum theory reveals puzzling pattern in how people respond to some surveys
Researchers used quantum theory – usually invoked to describe the actions of subatomic particles – to identify an unexpected and strange pattern in how people respond to survey questions.
New evidence for quantum Darwinism found in quantum dots
'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.
Quantum measurement precision approaches Heisenberg limit
Physicists seek to quantify macroscopic quantum states
Physicists create lightning in the race to develop quantum technology microchip
(Phys.org) —Physicists at the University of Sussex have invented a powerful new microchip capable of holding the voltage equivalent to a micronscale bolt of lightning that could be the key for developing ...
143 km: Physicists break quantum teleportation distance
Physicists at the University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences have achieved quantum teleportation over a record distance of 143 km. The experiment is a major step towards satellite-based quantum ...
'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 ...
Quantum mechanics explains efficiency of photosynthesis
Light-gathering macromolecules in plant cells transfer energy by taking advantage of molecular vibrations whose physical descriptions have no equivalents in classical physics, according to the first unambiguous ...
