Picturing Schrodinger's cat: Quantum physics enables revolutionary imaging method
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI), the Vienna Center for Quantum Science and Technology (VCQ), and the University of Vienna have developed a fundamentally new ...
Quantum reality more complex than previously thought
Imagine you order a delivery of several glass vases in different colors. Each vase is sent as a separate parcel. What would you think of the courier if the parcels arrive apparently undamaged, yet when you ...
Atoms with quantum memory
Order tends towards disorder. This is also true for quantum states. Measurements at the Vienna University of Technology show that in quantum mechanics this transition can be quite different from what we experience ...
D-Wave chip passes rigorous tests
With cutting-edge technology, sometimes the first step scientists face is just making sure it actually works as intended.
Scientists capture first direct images of theoretically predicted magnetic monopoles
(PhysOrg.com) -- Scientists have captured the first direct images of magnetic monopoles which were theoretically conceived by the British-Swiss physicist Dirac in the early 1930s who showed that their existence ...
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.
Einstein vs quantum mechanics, and why he'd be a convert today
Albert Einstein may be most famous for his mass-energy equivalence formula E = mc2, but his work also laid down the foundation for modern quantum mechanics.
Quantum steps towards the Big Bang
(Phys.org) —Present-day physics cannot describe what happened in the Big Bang. Quantum theory and the theory of relativity fail in this almost infinitely dense and hot primal state of the universe. Only ...
'Spooky action' builds a wormhole between 'entangled' quantum particles
Quantum entanglement, a perplexing phenomenon of quantum mechanics that Albert Einstein once referred to as "spooky action at a distance," could be even spookier than Einstein perceived.
Physicist proposes method to teleport energy
Tricking the uncertainty principle
(Phys.org) —Caltech researchers have found a way to make measurements that go beyond the limits imposed by quantum physics.
Scientists create first electronic quantum processor
A team led by Yale University researchers has created the first rudimentary solid-state quantum processor, taking another step toward the ultimate dream of building a quantum computer.
