A matter of matter: Demonstrating destructive quantum interference using Bose-Einstein condensates
Can dark energy be explained by symmetrons?
Superheated Bose-Einstein condensate exists above critical temperature
Physicists experimentally demonstrate one-way quantum steering
Ultracold disappearing act: 'Matter waves' move through one another but never share space
A disappearing act was the last thing Rice University physicist Randy Hulet expected to see in his ultracold atomic experiments, but that is what he and his students produced by colliding pairs of Bose Einstein ...
Could the combination of general relativity and quantum mechanics lead to spintronics?
New principle may help explain why nature is quantum
Like small children, scientists are always asking the question 'why?'. One question they've yet to answer is why nature picked quantum physics, in all its weird glory, as a sensible way to behave. Researchers ...
Physicist suggests some types of wormholes may stay open long enough to send a photon through
Einstein's 'spooky' theory may lead to ultra-secure internet
(Phys.org) —Einstein's scepticism about quantum mechanics may lead to an ultra-secure internet, suggests a new paper by researchers from Swinburne University of Technology and Peking University.
'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 ...
Expert psychologist suggests the era of genius scientists is over
New particle might make quantum condensation at room temperature possible
Researchers from FOM Institute AMOLF, Philips Research, and the Autonomous University of Madrid have identified a new type of particle that might make quantum condensation possible at room temperature. The ...
Cold Atom Laboratory creates atomic dance
Like dancers in a chorus line, atoms' movements become synchronized when lowered to extremely cold temperatures. To study this bizarre phenomenon, called a Bose-Einstein condensate, researchers need to cool ...
Testing Einstein's E=mc2 in outer space
(Phys.org)—University of Arizona physicist Andrei Lebed has stirred the physics community with an intriguing idea yet to be tested experimentally: The world's most iconic equation, Albert Einstein's E=mc2, may be cor ...
