A matter of matter: Demonstrating destructive quantum interference using Bose-Einstein condensates
Absence of gravitational-wave signal extends limit on knowable universe
Imagine an instrument that can measure motions a billion times smaller than an atom that last a millionth of a second. Fermilab's Holometer is currently the only machine with the ability to take these very ...
Can dark energy be explained by symmetrons?
Superheated Bose-Einstein condensate exists above critical temperature
Physicists experimentally demonstrate one-way quantum steering
The mysterious dark energy that speeds the universe's rate of expansion
The nature of dark energy is one of the most important unsolved problems in all of science. But what, exactly, is dark energy, and why do we even believe that it exists?
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?
Examining Einstein—precise experiments using lasers in space
Tests carried out in zero-gravity on board the FOKUS research rocket. Successful demonstration of technology for the QUANTUS mission.
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.
Correlations of quantum particles help in distinguishing physical processes
Communication security and metrology could be enhanced through a study of the role of quantum correlations in the distinguishability of physical processes, by researchers at the Universities of Strathclyde ...
'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 ...
