Quantum teleportation between atomic ensembles demonstrated for first time
Mathematician makes breakthrough in understanding of turbulence
(Phys.org)—A mathematician at the University of Glasgow is helping to find an answer to one of the last unsolved problems in classical mechanics.
Powering lasers through heat
In micro electronics heat often causes problems and engineers have to put a lot of technical effort into cooling, for example micro chips, to dissipate heat that is generated during operation. Austrian physicists ...
Is dark energy static or dynamic?
First noiseless single photon amplifier
Research physicists have demonstrated the first device capable of amplifying the information in a single particle of light without adding noise.
Electron microscopes with a twist
Vortex beams, rotating like a tornado, offer completely new possibilities for electron microscopy. A method of producing extremely intense vortex beams has been discovered at the Vienna University of Technology ...
Answer to energy transfer debate could impact areas from photovoltaics to quantum information
World record for the entanglement of twisted light quanta
(Phys.org)—The Vienna research team led by Anton Zeilinger has achieved a new milestone in the history of quantum physics: The scientists were able to generate and measure the entanglement of the largest ...
Researchers look beyond space and time to cope with quantum theory
Physicists have proposed an experiment that could force us to make a choice between extremes to describe the behaviour of the Universe.
A 'nanoscale landscape' controls flow of surface electrons on a topological insulator
In the relatively new scientific frontier of topological insulators, theoretical and experimental physicists have been studying the surfaces of these unique materials for insights into the behavior of electrons that display ...
Atomic nuclei intimately entangled by a quantum measurement
Scientists from the Netherlands (Delft University of Technology and the FOM Foundation) and the UK (Element Six) have brought two atomic nuclei in a diamond into a quantum entangled state. This exotic relation ...
Vortices in atomic gases resolve basic phenomena of quantum physics
Quantum phenomena at extremely low temperatures are fervently studied both theoretically and experimentally in contemporary physics. Alkali atoms cooled to near absolute zero formed the first experimentally successful gaseous ...
