Enlisting symmetry to protect quantum states from disruptions

Symmetry permeates nature, from the radial symmetry of flowers to the left-right symmetry of the human body. As such, it provides a natural way of classifying objects by grouping those that share the same symmetry. This is ...

Tricking the uncertainty principle

(Phys.org) —Caltech researchers have found a way to make measurements that go beyond the limits imposed by quantum physics.

Researchers unravel the mystery of quantum dot blinking

Researchers show that the big bang was followed by chaos

(PhysOrg.com) -- Seven years ago Northwestern University physicist Adilson E. Motter conjectured that the expansion of the universe at the time of the big bang was highly chaotic. Now he and a colleague have proven it using ...

Researchers find first-ever 'wanderlust gene' in tiny bony fish

(PhysOrg.com) -- A gene previously associated with physical traits is also dictating behaviour in a tiny fish widely regarded as a living model of Darwin's natural selection theory, according to a University of British Columbia ...
