(PhysOrg.com) -- Researchers use the concept of "anti-kick" to explain why the speed suddenly decreases after the collision of such exotic objects.
Some scientists have likened it to voodoo, while Albert Einstein called it just plain "spooky." In the bizarre realm of quantum mechanics, entanglement is the phenomenon in which two seemingly distinct particles control each ...
When it comes to looking at reality from the subatomic perspective of quantum theory, many physicists are nearly as much in the dark as the average person on the street.
For the first time, scientists at IBM Research have demonstrated a complex quantum mechanical phenomenon known as Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC), using a luminescent polymer (plastic) similar to the materials in light emitting ...
Efforts to detect gravitational waves—which were first predicted by Albert Einstein nearly 100 years ago—are advancing with international researchers including UWA researchers boosting the sensitivity of wave detectors.
(Phys.org) —An international team of researchers has reached a milestone in experimental confirmation of a key tenet of quantum mechanics, using ultra-sensitive photon detectors devised by PML scientists.
A team of EU-funded researchers has, for the first time, successfully carried out a constant stabilisation experiment of a quantum state - something Albert Einstein himself once dreamt of.
Fundamentals of physics confirmed: Experiments testing Einstein's time dilation and quantum electrodynamics
The special theory of relativity of Albert Einstein and quantum electrodynamics, which was formulated by, among others, Richard Feynman, are two important fundaments of modern physics. In cooperation with colleagues from ...
Scientists have found new evidence that an idea Albert Einstein regretted ever having may be key to solving a big mystery: why the universe is expanding at an ever-faster clip.
Albert Einstein accepted the modern cosmological view that the universe is expanding long after his contemporaries, new study shows.
