Physicists succeed in closing last local realistic loophole for systems of entangled photons
A team led by the Austrian physicist Anton Zeilinger has carried out an experiment with photons, in which they have closed an important loophole. The researchers have thus provided the most complete experimental ...
Quantum physics in 1-D: New experiment supports long-predicted 'Luttinger liquid' model
How would electrons behave if confined to a wire so slender they could pass through it only in single-file?
Quantum entanglement only dependent upon area
Two researchers at UCL Computer Science and the University of Gdansk present a new method for determining the amount of entanglement – a quantum phenomenon connecting two remote partners, and crucial for quantum technology ...
What if quantum physics worked on a macroscopic level?
Quantum physics concerns a world of infinitely small things. But for years, researchers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, have been attempting to observe the properties of quantum physics on a larger scale, ...
Physicists propose measure of macroscopicity; Schrodinger's cat scores a 57
Making big 'Schroedinger cats': Quantum research pushes boundary by testing micro theory for macro objects
Since Erwin Schroedinger's famous 1935 cat thought experiment, physicists around the globe have tried to create large scale systems to test how the rules of quantum mechanics apply to everyday objects.
Movement of pyrrole molecules defy 'classical' physics
(Phys.org) —New research shows that movement of the ring-like molecule pyrrole over a metal surface runs counter to the centuries-old laws of 'classical' physics that govern our everyday world.
Famous Feynman lectures put online with free access
Physicists study magnetism with the roles of position and momentum reversed
Curtains down for the black hole firewall paradox: Making gravity safe for Einstein again
Research by scientists at the University of York has revealed new insights into the life and death of black holes.
Quantum mechanical behaviour at the macroscale
Most quantum physics research to date has used particles such as atoms and electrons to observe quantum mechanical behaviour. Professor Mika Sillanpää of Aalto University is now working in the relatively new field of using ...
When fluid dynamics mimic quantum mechanics
In the early days of quantum physics, in an attempt to explain the wavelike behavior of quantum particles, the French physicist Louis de Broglie proposed what he called a "pilot wave" theory. According to ...
Teleported by electronic circuit: Physicists 'beam' information
ETH-researchers cannot "beam" objects or humans of flesh and blood through space yet, a feat sometimes alluded to in science fiction movies. They managed, however, to teleport information from A to B – for the first time ...
