Medicine & TechnologyAiming to emulate the quantum characteristics of materials more realistically, researchers have figured out a way to create a lattice of light and atoms that can vibrate – bringing sound to an otherwise silent experiment.
The new state of matter known as time crystals upends the laws of thermodynamics in a way that was not done before. So how do time crystals break the laws of physics, and how could it help future quantum computing studies?
Researchers from the University of Queensland have developed a revolutionary quantum microscope that allows scientists to peer into the minuscule world of complex biological structures using the science of quantum entanglement.
Single photon switches, which can turn physical processes on or off by using only a single packet of light, have far-reaching implications for quantum photonic technologies - and a new breakthrough makes it one step closer to realization.
Scientists from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have managed to create a smaller version of the optical components that can cool atoms down close to absolute zero - a few thousandths of a degree from 0 Kelvins.
