Classical physics shown to be equal to quantum theory when it comes to unusual experiments with light beams
Quantum mechanics provides such a different description of the world compared to classical physics that even Albert Einstein had problems comprehending the implications of the theory. However, sometimes the ...
The quantum revolution is a step closer
A new way to run a quantum algorithm using much simpler methods than previously thought has been discovered by a team of researchers at the University of Bristol. These findings could dramatically bring ...
Of Einstein and entanglement: Quantum erasure deconstructs wave-particle duality
Physicists introduce another quantum animal: The Quantum Pigeon
Recently physicists at Chapman University's Institute for Quantum Studies introduced the Quantum Cheshire Cat. Now they have introduced another quantum animal: the Quantum Pigeon.
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.
Research promises breakthrough in internet bandwidth (w/ Video)
As rapidly increasing demand for bandwidth strains the Internet's capacity, a team of engineers has devised a new fiber optic technology that promises to increase bandwidth dramatically. The new technology could enable Internet ...
Oxford Questions seek to pull back the curtain on the foundations of quantum physics
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 ...
Physicists study magnetism with the roles of position and momentum reversed
New scheme for quantum computing
(Phys.org) —Tom Wong, a graduate student in physics and David Meyer, professor of mathematics at the University of California, San Diego, have proposed a new algorithm for quantum computing, that will speed ...
Micro-macro entangled 'cat states' could one day test quantum gravity
Quantum refrigerator offers extreme cooling and convenience
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated a solid-state refrigerator that uses quantum physics in micro- and nanostructures to cool a much larger object to ...
Superheated Bose-Einstein condensate exists above critical temperature
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.
