Quantum hard drive breakthrough
Physicists developing a prototype quantum hard drive have improved storage time by a factor of more than 100.
Entanglement made tangible
EPFL scientists have designed a first-ever experiment for demonstrating quantum entanglement in the macroscopic realm. Unlike other such proposals, the experiment is relatively easy to set up and run with existing semiconductor ...
Three's a charm: NIST detectors reveal entangled photon triplets
Researchers at the University of Waterloo in Canada have directly entangled three photons in the most technologically useful state for the first time, thanks in part to superfast, super-efficient single-photon ...
To test the effect of gravity on quantum entanglement, we need to go to space
There is an up-and-coming set of technologies that uses the strange properties of atomic particles predicted by the theory of quantum mechanics, which is the physics of the very small stuff. This technology ...
Physicists propose way to use quantum bidding in bridge
Theorists propose globally networked entangled atomic clock
Best of Last Week – quantum information accurately transfered, better wind turbines and study of porn's impact on brain
Record quantum entanglement of multiple dimensions
An international team directed by researchers from the Austrian Academy of Sciences, with participation from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, has managed to create an entanglement of 103 dimensions with only two photons. ...
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.
Researchers propose using distant quasars to test Bell's theorem
In a paper published this week in the journal Physical Review Letters, MIT researchers propose an experiment that may close the last major loophole of Bell's inequality—a 50-year-old theorem that, if vio ...
New theory suggests way to teleport energy long distances
Creation of entanglement simultaneously gives rise to a wormhole
Quantum entanglement is one of the more bizarre theories to come out of the study of quantum mechanics—so strange, in fact, that Albert Einstein famously referred to it as "spooky action at a distance."
'Spooky action' builds a wormhole between 'entangled' quantum particles
Quantum entanglement, a perplexing phenomenon of quantum mechanics that Albert Einstein once referred to as "spooky action at a distance," could be even spookier than Einstein perceived.
Quantum teleportation: Transfer of flying quantum bits at the touch of a button
By means of the quantum-mechanical entanglement of spatially separated light fields, researchers in Tokyo and Mainz have managed to teleport photonic qubits with extreme reliability. This means that a decisive breakthrough ...
