Creating a six-qubit cluster state
Longer distance quantum teleportation achieved
Physicists at the University of Geneva have succeeded in teleporting the quantum state of a photon to a crystal over 25 kilometers of optical fiber.
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.
Chinese team entangles eight photons, breaking record
Controlled emission and spatial splitting of electron pairs demonstrated
In quantum optics, generating entangled and spatially separated photon pairs (e.g. for quantum cryptography) is already a reality. So far, it has, however, not been possible to demonstrate an analogous generation ...
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 ...
New study suggests researchers can now test the 'theory of everything'
(PhysOrg.com) -- Researchers describe how to carry out the first experimental test of string theory in a paper published tomorrow in Physical Review Letters.
10 billion bits of entanglement achieved in silicon
(PhysOrg.com) -- Scientists from Oxford University have made a significant step towards an ultrafast quantum computer by successfully generating 10 billion bits of quantum entanglement in silicon for the first ...
Mathematical breakthrough sets out rules for more effective teleportation
For the last ten years, theoretical physicists have shown that the intense connections generated between particles as established in the quantum law of 'entanglement' may hold the key to eventual teleportation of quantum ...
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 ...
A small quantum leap: New switching device could help build ultrafast quantum Internet
(PhysOrg.com) -- Northwestern University researchers have developed a new switching device that takes quantum communication to a new level. The device is a practical step toward creating a network that takes ...
Scientists Extend the Lifetime of Quantum Memory
Vibration rocks for entangled diamonds
(PhysOrg.com) -- Diamonds are celebrated for their enduring beauty and hardness but they can also be a physicists best friend.
Einstein vs quantum mechanics, and why he'd be a convert today
Albert Einstein may be most famous for his mass-energy equivalence formula E = mc2, but his work also laid down the foundation for modern quantum mechanics.
