Fishing rope cut from endangered whale off Georgia
Wildlife officials say they cut away more than 280 feet of commercial fishing line being dragged by an endangered right whale off the Georgia coast.
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 ...
Killing whales by design and default
While countries such as Japan, Norway, and Iceland often are criticized for their commercial whaling practices, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) marine biologist Michael Moore points out how the ...

New theory suggests way to teleport energy long distances
Maxwell's demon can use quantum information to generate work
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.
How losing information can benefit quantum computing
Suggesting that quantum computers might benefit from losing some data, physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have entangled—linked the quantum properties of—two ions ...
Physicists aim to make transition to quantum world visible
Theoretical physicist Frank Wilhelm-Mauch and his research team at Saarland University have developed a mathematical model for a type of microscopic test lab that could provide new and deeper insight into ...
Physicists find that entanglement concentration is irreversible, in contrast with previous research
Physicists 'entangle' microscopic drum's beat with electrical signals
Extending evidence of quantum behavior farther into the large-scale world of everyday life, physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have "entangled"—linked the properties ...
Crystal quantum memories for quantum communication
Research into the strange phenomenon known as quantum entanglement - once described as 'spooky' by Albert Einstein - could revolutionise ICT over the coming years, enabling everything from ultra-fast computing ...
Quantum computing: Manipulating a single nuclear spin qubit of a laser cooled atom
It is advantageous to implement a quantum bit (qubit) with a single nuclear spin because the nuclear spin is robust against any stray magnetic fields. This robustness can be attributed to the small magnitude ...
