Experiment opens the door to multi-party quantum communication (Update)
In the world of quantum science, Alice and Bob have been talking to one another for years. Charlie joined the conversation a few years ago, but now by enforcing the space-like separation of the three parties, ...
Quantum physics in 1-D: New experiment supports long-predicted 'Luttinger liquid' model
How would electrons behave if confined to a wire so slender they could pass through it only in single-file?
Duality principle is 'safe and sound': Researchers clear up apparent violation of wave-particle duality
Decades of experiments have verified the quirky laws of quantum theory again and again. So when scientists in Germany announced in 2012 an apparent violation of a fundamental law of quantum mechanics, a physicist at the University ...
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.
How 'spooky' quantum mechanical laws may affect everyday objects (Update)
(PhysOrg.com) -- In a study published in the July 1 issue of the journal Nature, Dartmouth researchers describe one example of the microscopic quantum world influencing--even dominating, they say--the behavi ...
Physicists show self-correcting quantum computers are theoretically possible
Quantum computing may actually be useful, after all
(PhysOrg.com) -- In recent years, quantum computers have lost some of their luster. In the 1990s, it seemed that they might be able to solve a class of difficult but common problems — the so-called NP-complete ...
Physicists Solve Difficult Classical Problem with One Quantum Bit
Quantum non-demolition measurement allows physicists to count photons without destroying them
Physicists propose test for loop quantum gravity
Science's breakthrough of the year: The first quantum machine
Until this year, all human-made objects have moved according to the laws of classical mechanics. Back in March, however, a group of researchers designed a gadget that moves in ways that can only be descri ...
