Quantum dark states lead to an advantage in noise reduction

While atomic clocks are already the most precise timekeeping devices in the universe, physicists are working hard to improve their accuracy even further. One way is by leveraging spin-squeezed states in clock atoms.

Shaping the dawn of the quantum age

Electrons that spin to the right and the left at the same time. Particles that change their states together, even though they are separated by enormous distances. Intriguing phenomena like these are completely commonplace ...

Telescope Array detects second-highest-energy cosmic ray ever

In 1991, the University of Utah Fly's Eye experiment detected the highest-energy cosmic ray ever observed. Later dubbed the Oh-My-God particle, the cosmic ray's energy shocked astrophysicists. Nothing in our galaxy had the ...

Europe's quantum decade extends into space

Europe—and the world—is in the midst of the "quantum decade": a period in which the peculiar properties of matter that manifest at the very tiniest of scales are being transformed from mere scientific curiosities into ...
