On the origins of the Schrodinger equation
Scientists tame Schrodinger's cat for a new type of quantum computer
Physicists at the University of Sussex have tamed one of the most counterintuitive phenomena of modern science in their quest to develop a new generation of machines capable of revolutionizing the way we ...
You don't exist in an infinite number of places, say scientists
Maxwell's demon can use quantum information to generate work
'Solid' light could compute previously unsolvable problems
Researchers at Princeton University have begun crystallizing light as part of an effort to answer fundamental questions about the physics of matter.
Creation of entanglement simultaneously gives rise to a wormhole
Quantum entanglement is one of the more bizarre theories to come out of the study of quantum mechanics—so strange, in fact, that Albert Einstein famously referred to it as "spooky action at a distance."
Quantum experiment verifies Einstein's 'spooky action at a distance'
An experiment devised in Griffith University's Centre for Quantum Dynamics has for the first time demonstrated Albert Einstein's original conception of "spooky action at a distance" using a single particle.
Extending Einstein's spooky action for use in quantum networks
An international team, including researchers from Swinburne University of Technology, has demonstrated that the 1935 Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) quantum mechanics paradox may be extended to more than two ...
'Spooky action' builds a wormhole between 'entangled' quantum particles
Quantum entanglement, a perplexing phenomenon of quantum mechanics that Albert Einstein once referred to as "spooky action at a distance," could be even spookier than Einstein perceived.
Physicists discuss quantum pigeonhole principle
Scientists set quantum speed limit
University of California, Berkeley, scientists have proved a fundamental relationship between energy and time that sets a "quantum speed limit" on processes ranging from quantum computing and tunneling to ...
New understanding of electromagnetism could enable 'antennas on a chip'
A team of researchers from the University of Cambridge have unravelled one of the mysteries of electromagnetism, which could enable the design of antennas small enough to be integrated into an electronic ...
Einstein vs quantum mechanics, and why he'd be a convert today
Albert Einstein may be most famous for his mass-energy equivalence formula E = mc2, but his work also laid down the foundation for modern quantum mechanics.
Fluid mechanics suggests alternative to quantum orthodoxy
The central mystery of quantum mechanics is that small chunks of matter sometimes seem to behave like particles, sometimes like waves. For most of the past century, the prevailing explanation of this conundrum ...
