Ex nihilo: Dynamical Casimir effect in metamaterial converts vacuum fluctuations into real photons
Curves in spacetime violate Heisenberg's uncertainty principle
Quantum strategies fail to improve capacity of quantum optical communication channels
You don't exist in an infinite number of places, say scientists
Physicists extend entanglement in Einstein experiment
Quantum mechanics could make money, credit cards, and tickets immune to fraud
Fraud-proof credit cards possible with quantum physics
Credit card fraud and identify theft are serious problems for consumers and industries. Though corporations and individuals work to improve safeguards, it has become increasingly difficult to protect financial ...
String field theory could be the foundation of quantum mechanics
Two USC researchers have proposed a link between string field theory and quantum mechanics that could open the door to using string field theory—or a broader version of it, called M-theory—as the basis ...
Many Interacting Worlds theory: Scientists propose existence and interaction of parallel worlds
Griffith University academics are challenging the foundations of quantum science with a radical new theory based on the existence of, and interactions between, parallel universes.
Can the wave function of an electron be divided and trapped?
New research by physicists from Brown University puts the profound strangeness of quantum mechanics in a nutshell—or, more accurately, in a helium bubble.
Cold Atom Laboratory creates atomic dance
Like dancers in a chorus line, atoms' movements become synchronized when lowered to extremely cold temperatures. To study this bizarre phenomenon, called a Bose-Einstein condensate, researchers need to cool ...
Researcher shows that black holes do not exist
Black holes have long captured the public imagination and been the subject of popular culture, from Star Trek to Hollywood. They are the ultimate unknown – the blackest and most dense objects in the universe ...
Three's a charm: NIST detectors reveal entangled photon triplets
Researchers at the University of Waterloo in Canada have directly entangled three photons in the most technologically useful state for the first time, thanks in part to superfast, super-efficient single-photon ...
