A clock that will last forever: Researchers propose a way to build the first space-time crystal
(Phys.org)—Imagine a clock that will keep perfect time forever, even after the heat-death of the universe. This is the "wow" factor behind a device known as a "space-time crystal," a four-dimensional crystal ...
Research team claims to have accurately 'teleported' quantum information ten feet
Einstein's 'spooky' theory may lead to ultra-secure internet
(Phys.org) —Einstein's scepticism about quantum mechanics may lead to an ultra-secure internet, suggests a new paper by researchers from Swinburne University of Technology and Peking University.
Quantum theory reveals puzzling pattern in how people respond to some surveys
Researchers used quantum theory – usually invoked to describe the actions of subatomic particles – to identify an unexpected and strange pattern in how people respond to survey questions.
Quantum physicists shed new light on relation between entanglement and nonlocality
(PhysOrg.com) -- New research from the University of Bristol may disprove a long-standing conjecture made by one of the founders of quantum information science: that quantum states featuring positive partial transpose, ...
Are weak values quantum? Don't bet on it
(Phys.org) —New work asserts that a key technique used to probe quantum systems may not be so quantum after all, according to Perimeter postdoctoral researcher Joshua Combes and his colleague Christopher ...
Putting the squeeze on quantum information
Canadian Institute for Advanced Research researchers have shown that information stored in quantum bits can be exponentially compressed without losing information. The achievement is an important proof of principle, and could ...
New analysis eliminates a potential speed bump in quantum computing
A quantum particle can search for an item in an unsorted "database" by jumping from one item to another in superposition, and it does so faster than a classical computer ever could.
