Quantum sensor's advantages survive entanglement breakdown
The extraordinary promise of quantum information processing—solving problems that classical computers can't, perfectly secure communication—depends on a phenomenon called "entanglement," in which the ...
Data structures influence speed of quantum search in unexpected ways
Using the quantum property of superposition, quantum computers will be able to find target items within large piles of data far faster than conventional computers ever could. But the speed of the search will ...
Long-searched-for glueball could soon be detected
Multiphysics invisibility cloak manipulates both electric current and heat
Gravity may have saved the universe after the Big Bang, say researchers
(Phys.org) —New research by a team of European physicists could explain why the universe did not collapse immediately after the Big Bang.
Russian researchers find more evidence to support notion that lightning is caused by cosmic rays
Simon's algorithm run on quantum computer for the first time—faster than on standard computer
Sandia magnetized fusion technique produces significant results
(Phys.org) —Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories' Z machine have produced a significant output of fusion neutrons, using a method fully functioning for only little more than a year.
First instance of ball lightning captured on video and spectrographs
Physicists suggest theory versus observational differences in the sun could be due to dark matter
LHCb experiment observes two new baryon particles never seen before
(Phys.org) —Today the collaboration for the LHCb experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider announced the discovery of two new particles in the baryon family. The particles, known as the Xi_b'- and Xi_b*- ...
Researchers make magnetic graphene
Graphene, a one-atom thick sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice, has many desirable properties. Magnetism alas is not one of them. Magnetism can be induced in graphene by doping it with magnetic ...
New measure of gravitational constant higher than expected
Physicists detect process even rarer than the long-sought Higgs particle
(Phys.org) —Scientists running the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest and most powerful "atom smasher," report the first evidence of a process that can be used to test ...
