Researchers strive to simulate turbulent combustion in aerospace applications
A research team at the University of Pittsburgh is developing quantum-computing algorithms to better model turbulent combustion in aerospace applications.
Two molecules communicate via single photons
Scientists realize one of the most elementary and oldest "gedanken" experiments in modern physics, namely, excitation of a single molecule with a single photon. This paves the way for further investigations ...
Israeli library uploads Newton's theological texts
He's considered to be one of the greatest scientists of all time. But Sir Isaac Newton was also an influential theologian who applied a scientific approach to the study of scripture, Hebrew and Jewish mysticism.
Scientists observe how superconducting nanowires lose resistance-free state
Even with today's invisibility cloaks, people can't walk through walls. But, when paired together, millions of electrons can.
Material created at Purdue lets electrons 'dance' and form new state
A team of Purdue University researchers is among a small group in the world that has successfully created ultrapure material that captures new states of matter and could have applications in high-speed quantum ...
New driving force for chemical reactions discovered
New research just published in the journal Science by a team of chemists at the University of Georgia and colleagues in Germany shows for the first time that a mechanism called tunneling control may drive chemical reacti ...
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 ...
Random numbers game with quantum dice
(PhysOrg.com) -- A simple device measures the quantum noise of vacuum fluctuations and generates true random numbers.
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 ...
Study lays foundations for tomographics applied to the quantum world
Spanish scientists at the Universidad Carlos III of Madrid have proven the validity of tomographic representation of quantum states, which can help quantum technologies transmit information more safely and ...
Top Russian mathematician Vladimir Arnold dies
Russian Vladimir Arnold, one of the most important mathematicians of the 20th century, died Thursday in France just a few days short of his 73rd birthday, Russian news agencies reported.
Quantum Communication in Random Networks
Internet, networks of connections between Hollywood actors, etc, are examples of complex networks, whose properties have been intensively studied in recent times. The small-world property (that everyone has ...
Controlling the interaction between light and matter
World record: German supercomputer simulates quantum computer
A quantum computer could provide an enormous improvement in the processing speed of existing computers. However, as yet they only exist in the laboratory in the form of small prototypes with a capacity of a few bits. They ...
