Entanglement between particle and wave-like states of light resembles Schrodinger's cat experiment (Update)
Superconducting refrigerator cools via tunneling cascade
Most experiments that claim to show the quantum Zeno paradox fall short, study says
Physicists propose measure of macroscopicity; Schrodinger's cat scores a 57
On the origins of the Schrodinger equation
Camera chip provides superfine 3-D resolution
Imagine you need to have an almost exact copy of an object. Now imagine that you can just pull your smartphone out of your pocket, take a snapshot with its integrated 3-D imager, send it to your 3-D printer, ...
Robot model for infant learning shows bodily posture may affect memory and learning
An Indiana University cognitive scientist and collaborators have found that posture is critical in the early stages of acquiring new knowledge.
Researchers describe the wavefunction of Schroedinger's cat
Schrödinger's cat highlights a long-standing dilemma in quantum mechanics: is the cat really alive and dead, or is the weirdness just in our head?
New algorithm could enable household robots to better identify objects in cluttered environments
For household robots ever to be practical, they'll need to be able to recognize the objects they're supposed to manipulate. But while object recognition is one of the most widely studied topics in artificial ...
Map of mysterious molecules in galaxy sheds new light on century-old puzzle
By analyzing the light of hundreds of thousands of celestial objects, Johns Hopkins astronomers from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey have created a unique map of enigmatic molecules in our galaxy that are responsible ...
Newest computer neural networks can identify visual objects as well as the primate brain
For decades, neuroscientists have been trying to design computer networks that can mimic visual skills such as recognizing objects, which the human brain does very accurately and quickly.
Picturing Schrodinger's cat: Quantum physics enables revolutionary imaging method
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI), the Vienna Center for Quantum Science and Technology (VCQ), and the University of Vienna have developed a fundamentally new ...
Researchers build optical invisibility cloak for a diffusive medium
Real invisibility cloaks are rather complex and work in certain situations only. The laws of physics prevent an optical invisibility cloak from making objects in air invisible for any directions, colors, ...
New goggle-like device may lead to 3-D augmented reality technology that minimizes visual fatigue
Augmented reality is increasingly becoming… well … a reality. Smartphone apps can point out restaurants as you scan the street with your phone camera or even identify constellations when you point your ...
