Quantum levitation could prevent nano systems from crashing together
Trade-off coding for quantum communication provides more benefits than previously thought
Physicists describe how to make time-reversed light pulses
Strings attached to future high temperature superconductivity
The behaviour of strongly correlated electron systems, such as high temperature superconductors, defies explanation in the language of ordinary quantum theory. A seemingly unrelated area of physics, string theory, might give ...
Proposed experiment offers new way to generate macroscopic entanglement
Extending Einstein's spooky action for use in quantum networks
An international team, including researchers from Swinburne University of Technology, has demonstrated that the 1935 Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) quantum mechanics paradox may be extended to more than two ...
Could silicon be ideal in quantum computing?
New principle may help explain why nature is quantum
Like small children, scientists are always asking the question 'why?'. One question they've yet to answer is why nature picked quantum physics, in all its weird glory, as a sensible way to behave. Researchers ...
Vertical cavity quantum switch could lead us away from electronics-based computing
Hindsight and foresight together more accurately 'predict' quantum system's state than foresight alone
We are so used to murder mysteries that we don't even notice how mystery authors play with time. Typically the murder occurs well before the midpoint of the book, but there is an information blackout at that ...
Quantum eavesdropper steals quantum keys
Physicists offer countermeasure to new quantum eavesdropping attack
New Law of Physics Could Explain Quantum Mysteries
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 ...
