Apr. 23, 2015 — Thermal imaging, microscopy and ultra-trace sensing could take a quantum leap with a new technique. Scientists used quantum correlated beams of light to overcome the fundamental detection limit of ... read more

Apr. 23, 2015 — Albert Einstein tells us that clocks run slower the deeper they are in the gravitational potential well of a mass – the closer they are to a heavenly body, for example. This effect is described by ... read more

Apr. 23, 2015 — Scientists have created an electronic device so accurate that it can detect the charge of a single electron in less than one microsecond. It has been dubbed the 'gate sensor' and could be ... read more

Reducing Big Data Using Ideas from Quantum Theory Makes It Easier to Interpret

Apr. 23, 2015 — Analysing the large volumes of data gathered by modern businesses and public services is problematic. Traditionally, relationships between the different parts of a network have been  represented  ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — In the quantum world of light, being distinguishable means staying lonely. Only those photons that are indistinguishable can wind up in a pair, through what is called Hong-Ou-Mandel interference. ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — Physicists have developed a new tabletop particle detector that is able to identify single electrons in a radioactive ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — In another advance at the far frontiers of timekeeping , the latest modification of a record-setting strontium atomic clock has achieved precision and stability levels that now mean the clock would ... read more

Apr. 20, 2015 — Physicists have used a new quantum model to reveal the molecular structure of water's liquid ... read more

Apr. 16, 2015 — Neutrinos are a type of particle that pass through just about everything in their path from even the most distant regions of the universe. The giant IceCube experiment at the South Pole can detect ... read more

Apr. 16, 2015 — A team of physicists proposes the combination of nano-photonics with ultracold atoms for simulating quantum many-body systems and creating new states of ... read more

Quantum Cryptography at the Speed of Light: Researchers Design First All-Photonic Repeaters

Apr. 15, 2015 — Engineers bring perfectly secure information exchanges one step to reality. They have now designed the first all-photonic quantum repeaters -- protocols that ensure data can be carried reliably and ... read more

Apr. 14, 2015 — Thanks to accelerator advances, the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, a powerful nuclear physics research facility has just shattered its own record for producing polarized proton collisions at ... read more

Apr. 14, 2015 — Thousands of times a second the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory re-creates the hot quark soup that existed at the dawn of the universe. Particles composed of heavy ... read more

Quantum Hall Effect: Quantization of 'Surface Dirac States' Could Lead to Exotic Applications

Apr. 14, 2015 — Researchers have uncovered the first evidence of an unusual quantum phenomenon -- the integer quantum Hall effect -- in a new type of film, called a 3-D topological insulator. This discovery could ... read more

Apr. 13, 2015 — Physicists have narrowed the theoretical limits for where the 'speed limit' lies for quantum computers. The findings, which offer a better description of how quickly information can travel ... read more

Apr. 10, 2015 — Scientists have encoded quantum information in silicon using simple electrical pulses for the first time, bringing the construction of affordable large-scale quantum computers one step closer to ... read more

Apr. 9, 2015 — Temperature is a statistical concept. Very small systems, consisting of a small number of particles, are not usually described statistically. Scientists have now measured how quantum systems reach a ... read more

Apr. 9, 2015 — The Holometer experiment is sensitive to gravitational waves at frequencies in the range of a million cycles per second. Thus it addresses a spectrum not covered by experiments such as the Laser ... read more

Apr. 9, 2015 — New understanding of the nature of electromagnetism could lead to antennas small enough to fit on computer chips -- the 'last frontier' of semiconductor design -- and could help identify ... read more

Apr. 9, 2015 — For the first time, physicists have achieved interference between two separate atoms: when sent towards the opposite sides of a semi-transparent mirror, the two atoms always emerge together. This ... read more
