Research team challenges the limits of famous quantum principle
(Phys.org) —A team of physicists is challenging the very limits of Heisenberg's famous uncertainty principle by measuring quantum particles with unprecedented accuracy.
Teleportation just got easier—but not for you, unfortunately
Thanks to two studies published in Nature last Thursday, the chance of successful teleportation has considerably increased. Which is a good thing, right? ...
'Listening' to black holes form with gravity waves
New technology that breaks the quantum measurement barrier has been developed to detect the gravity waves first predicted by Einstein in 1916.
Uncertainty revisited: Novel tradeoffs in quantum measurement
Hydrogen atoms under the magnifying glass
To describe the microscopic properties of matter and its interaction with the external world, quantum mechanics uses wave functions, whose structure and time dependence is governed by the Schrödinger equation. ...
Physicists successfully transmit secure quantum code through atmosphere from aircraft to ground station
(Phys.org) —Can worldwide communication ever be fully secure? Quantum physicists believe they can provide secret keys using quantum cryptography via satellite. Unlike communication based on classical bits, ...
Getting around the 'uncertainty principle': Physicists make first direct measurements of polarization states of light
Researchers at the University of Rochester and the University of Ottawa have applied a recently developed technique to directly measure for the first time the polarization states of light. Their work both ...
Light particles illuminate the vacuum
Researchers from the Finnish Aalto University and the Technical Research Centre of Finland succeeded in showing experimentally that vacuum has properties not previously observed. According to the laws of ...
Curves in spacetime violate Heisenberg's uncertainty principle
Researchers demonstrate Heisenberg uncertainty principle at macro level
Revealing quantum flow
(Phys.org)—UK-based physicist Ole Steuernagel from the University of Hertfordshire, alongside Dimitris Kakofengitis and Georg Ritter, have found that a new powerful tool they call 'Wigner flow' is the quantum ...
