Best of Last Week – Setting a quantum speed limit, slowing the speed of light and turning back the aging clock
Scientists set quantum speed limit
University of California, Berkeley, scientists have proved a fundamental relationship between energy and time that sets a "quantum speed limit" on processes ranging from quantum computing and tunneling to ...
Best of Last Week – Quantum physics got less complicated, the pseudogap and ibuprofen as an anti-aging drug
Quantum physics just got less complicated
Here's a nice surprise: quantum physics is less complicated than we thought. An international team of researchers has proved that two peculiar features of the quantum world previously considered distinct ...
Carbyne morphs when stretched: Calculations show carbon-atom chain would go metal to semiconductor
(Phys.org) —Applying just the right amount of tension to a chain of carbon atoms can turn it from a metallic conductor to an insulator, according to Rice University scientists.
Tricking the uncertainty principle
(Phys.org) —Caltech researchers have found a way to make measurements that go beyond the limits imposed by quantum physics.
Proving uncertainty: First rigorous formulation supporting Heisenberg's famous 1927 principle
Nearly 90 years after Werner Heisenberg pioneered his uncertainty principle, a group of researchers from three countries has provided substantial new insight into this fundamental tenet of quantum physics ...

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. ...
