Making Quantum Behavior Observable Using Optical Levitation
Team finds elusive quantum transformations near absolute zero
Heat drives classical phase transitions—think solid, liquid, and gas—but much stranger things can happen when the temperature drops. If phase transitions occur at the coldest temperatures imaginable, ...
Tricking the uncertainty principle
(Phys.org) —Caltech researchers have found a way to make measurements that go beyond the limits imposed by quantum physics.
'Listening' to black holes form with gravity waves
New technology that breaks the quantum measurement barrier has been developed to detect the gravity waves first predicted by Einstein in 1916.
Squeezed light produced using silicon micromechanical system
One of the many counterintuitive and bizarre insights of quantum mechanics is that even in a vacuum—what many of us think of as an empty void—all is not completely still. Low levels of noise, known as ...
Researchers develop nanodiamond thermometer to take temperature of individual cells
Researchers demonstrate Heisenberg uncertainty principle at macro level
Does probability come from quantum physics?
(Phys.org)—Ever since Austrian scientist Erwin Schrodinger put his unfortunate cat in a box, his fellow physicists have been using something called quantum theory to explain and understand the nature of waves and particles.
Physicists move one step closer to quantum computer
Rice University physicists have created a tiny "electron superhighway" that could one day be useful for building a quantum computer, a new type of computer that will use quantum particles in place of the digital ...
Researchers take a step toward valleytronics
Valley-based electronics, also known as valleytronics, is one step closer to reality. Two researchers at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) have shown that the valley degree of freedom in graphene can be ...
Random numbers game with quantum dice
(PhysOrg.com) -- A simple device measures the quantum noise of vacuum fluctuations and generates true random numbers.
