Eavesdroppers begone: New quantum key distribution technique is impervious to noise
A matter of matter: Demonstrating destructive quantum interference using Bose-Einstein condensates
Heads or tails: Experimental quantum coin flipping cryptography performs better than classical protocols
Fusion, and friction, and fields! Oh, my! The rich and ubiquitous world of fluid dynamics
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 ...
Fluid mechanics suggests alternative to quantum orthodoxy
The central mystery of quantum mechanics is that small chunks of matter sometimes seem to behave like particles, sometimes like waves. For most of the past century, the prevailing explanation of this conundrum ...
'Solid' light could compute previously unsolvable problems
Researchers at Princeton University have begun crystallizing light as part of an effort to answer fundamental questions about the physics of matter.
Duality principle is 'safe and sound': Researchers clear up apparent violation of wave-particle duality
Decades of experiments have verified the quirky laws of quantum theory again and again. So when scientists in Germany announced in 2012 an apparent violation of a fundamental law of quantum mechanics, a physicist at the University ...
Researchers inspired by marine life to design camouflage systems (w/ Video)
It could be a fun party trick – put your cell phone down on a table and watch it fade into the woodwork – or part of a lifesaving technology used by industry or the military.
Researchers develop treated surfaces that can actively control how fluids or particles move (w/ Video)
Researchers at MIT and in Saudi Arabia have developed a new way of making surfaces that can actively control how fluids or particles move across them. The work might enable new kinds of biomedical or microfluidic ...
Physicists discuss quantum pigeonhole principle
Law of physics governs airplane evolution
Researchers believe they now know why the supersonic trans-Atlantic Concorde aircraft went the way of the dodo—it hit an evolutionary cul-de-sac.
Researchers figure out how oddly shaped sandstone landform structures come about
Material generates steam under solar illumination
A new material structure developed at MIT generates steam by soaking up the sun.
