Subatomic quantum memory in diamond demonstrated
Physicists working at the University of California, Santa Barbara and the University of Konstanz in Germany have developed a breakthrough in the use of diamond in quantum physics, marking an important step ...
Engineers make sound loud enough to bend light on a computer chip
During a thunderstorm, we all know that it is common to hear thunder after we see the lightning. That's because sound travels much slower (768 miles per hour) than light (670,000,000 miles per hour).
Extending Einstein: Researchers demonstrate a new kind of quantum entanglement
Physicists at the University of Calgary and at the Institute for Quantum Computing in Waterloo have published new research in Nature Physics which builds on the original ideas of Einstein and adds a new ingredient: a thir ...
Astronomers solve mystery of vanishing energetic electrons in Earth's outer radiation belt
UCLA researchers have explained the puzzling disappearing act of energetic electrons in Earth's outer radiation belt, using data collected from a fleet of orbiting spacecraft.
Looking at quantum gravity in a mirror
Einstein's theory of gravity and quantum physics are expected to merge at the Planck-scale of extremely high energies and on very short distances. At this scale, new phenomena could arise. However, the Planck-scale ...
Tricking the uncertainty principle
(Phys.org) —Caltech researchers have found a way to make measurements that go beyond the limits imposed by quantum physics.
Superheated Bose-Einstein condensate exists above critical temperature
Better power grid synchronization may enable smart grids to self-recover from failures
'Long-awaited explanation' for mysterious effects in high-temperature superconductors
A German-French research team has constructed a new model that explains how the so-called pseudogap state forms in high-temperature superconductors. The calculations predict two coexisting electron orders. ...
'Metascreen' forms ultra-thin invisibility cloak
(Phys.org) —Up until now, the invisibility cloaks put forward by scientists have been fairly bulky contraptions – an obvious flaw for those interested in Harry Potter-style applications.
Quantum teleportation between atomic systems over long distances
Researchers have been able to teleport information from light to light at a quantum level for several years. In 2006, researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute succeeded in teleporting between light and gas ...
New magnetic graphene may revolutionise electronics
Researchers from IMDEA-Nanociencia Institute and from Autonoma and Complutense Universities of Madrid (Spain) have managed to give graphene magnetic properties. The breakthrough, published in the journal ...
Scientists manage to study the physics that connect the classical the quantum world
How does a classical temperature form in the quantum world? An experiment at the Vienna University of Technology has directly observed the emergence and the spreading of a temperature in a quantum system. ...
First-ever images of atoms moving in a molecule captured
Using a new ultrafast camera, researchers have recorded the first real-time image of two atoms vibrating in a molecule.
