Hydrogel remembers its shape
(Phys.org)—A bit reminiscent of the Terminator T-1000, a new material created by Cornell researchers is so soft that it can flow like a liquid and then, strangely, return to its original shape.
Researchers show that relatively simple physical systems could yield powerful quantum computers
Quantum computers are devices—still largely theoretical—that could perform certain types of computations much faster than classical computers; one way they might do that is by exploiting "spin," a property ...
Quantum teleportation between atomic ensembles demonstrated for first time
Researchers entangle a single electron spin to a single photon in a quantum dot
Physicists theorize entangled quantum batteries could be almost perfect
World record for the entanglement of twisted light quanta
(Phys.org)—The Vienna research team led by Anton Zeilinger has achieved a new milestone in the history of quantum physics: The scientists were able to generate and measure the entanglement of the largest ...
Quantum communication without entanglement could perform faster than previously thought possible
Researchers look beyond space and time to cope with quantum theory
Physicists have proposed an experiment that could force us to make a choice between extremes to describe the behaviour of the Universe.
Controlling single electrons for novel devices
European scientists conducted groundbreaking single-electron experiments with exciting results for the field of nanoelectronics and quantum computing.
Atomic nuclei intimately entangled by a quantum measurement
Scientists from the Netherlands (Delft University of Technology and the FOM Foundation) and the UK (Element Six) have brought two atomic nuclei in a diamond into a quantum entangled state. This exotic relation ...
Physics Nobel Prize poll: Quantum experiments and particle discoveries are the top picks
For the past month the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) has sponsored a website allowing visitors to vote for the topic they believe will capture this year's Nobel Prize for physics. The site offered 14 Nobel-worthy ...
Silicon chip enables mass-manufacture of quantum technologies
(Phys.org)—Scientists from the University of Bristol's Centre for Quantum Photonics have developed a silicon chip that will pave the way to the mass-manufacture of miniature quantum chips. The announcement ...
