Universe may be on the brink of collapse (on the cosmological timescale)
Scientists succeed in linking two different quantum systems
Physicists at the Universities of Bonn and Cambridge have succeeded in linking two completely different quantum systems to one another. In doing so, they have taken an important step forward on the way to a quantum computer. ...
Loophole in theory offers insight into the 'lithium problem'
First glimpse inside a macroscopic quantum state
In a recent study published in Physical Review Letters, the research group led by ICREA Prof at ICFO Morgan Mitchell has detected, for the first time, entanglement among individual photon pairs in a beam ...
Have researchers discovered the sound of the stars?
A chance discovery by a team of researchers, including a University of York scientist, has provided experimental evidence that stars may generate sound.
Could classical theory be just as weird as quantum theory?
Scientists go to great lengths to extend superlow friction
Light-matter interaction can turn opaque materials transparent
Physicist proves impossibility of quantum time crystals
Quark asymmetries hint at physics beyond the Standard Model
Optical data storage has virtually unlimited lifetime
Physicists 'uncollapse' a partially collapsed qubit
New map of Universe may reconcile conflicting cosmological observations
Team finds 'tipping point' between quantum and classical worlds
If we are ever to fully harness the power of light for use in optical devices, it is necessary to understand photons - the fundamental unit of light. Achieving such understanding, however, is easier said than done. That's ...
