Medicine & TechnologyResearchers from TU Wien in Vienna created a new nanostructure made of pure germanium bonded with aluminum that makes them best suited for complex applications in quantum technology.
National Institute of Standards and Technology physicists have developed a new small crystal that can detect the weak frequencies of dark matter as it interacts with normal matter, revolutionizing our understanding of the universe.
Researchers from UC Santa Barbara and Quantum Foundry have developed a new material slated to revolutionize quantum information-based technologies such as quantum computing and sensing because of its innate unique superconducting properties.
Researchers from the University of Sydney developed a way for quantum error computing sources to be identified using machine-learning techniques that can detect even the faintest environmental 'noise.'
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.
One property of quantum mechanics is superposition, which explains how a system could be in multiple states at the same time until the instant it is observed or measured. A theoretical study suggests that this phenomenon affects high-precision clocks.
Technological advancements have allowed physicists to manipulate and study quantum particles, their states, and their interactions. However, they still need to figure out how to keep quantum systems from decaying long enough to practically run computations and transfer information—and a simple solution might just solve the problem
Physicists from Yale University have developed an "error-correcting cat". This device combines the concept of superposition from the famous Schrödinger's cat experiment, and the ability to fix some of the persisting problems with quantum computation.
Every science fiction fan is familiar with the notion of parallel universes with the Star Trek series being one of the first to popularize the notion. However, thanks to the Large Hadron Collider, we may soon have proof that a parallel universe does, in fact, exist.
If you ever thought that you were alone in not understanding how light could both be a particle and a wave, you need not worry because you weren’t. In fact, for the better part of a century since Einstein theorized the dual nature of light, even researchers have had a tough time digesting the out-of-the-box quantum physics that this notion required to be true. Many researchers simply assumed that since the math checked out, and Einstein being the brilliant genius that he was, that the theory was right. But now, with some clever experimental design and a super-powered electron microscope, researchers are putting the doubts to rest and proving Einstein’s theory once and for all.
