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. 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

Apr. 9, 2015 — Scientists have achieved the ionization potential measurement of lawrencium (element 103) with a novel-type technique at the JAEA tandem accelerator. Based on the empirically developed "actinide ... read more

Apr. 9, 2015 — Nuclear physicists announced the first scientific results from the Cryogenic Underground Observatory for Rare Events (CUORE) experiment. CUORE is designed to confirm the existence of the Majorana ... read more

Apr. 8, 2015 — Light has been slowed down by coupling atoms to glass fibers. This technology is an important prerequisite for a future worldwide quantum ... read more

Apr. 6, 2015 — Yesterday, the world's most powerful particle accelerator began its second act. After two years of upgrades and repairs, proton beams once again circulated around the Large Hadron Collider, ... read more

Apr. 6, 2015 — Last month, a new superconducting magnet reached its design field of 11.5 Tesla at a temperature nearly as cold as outer space. It is the first successful twin-aperture accelerator magnet made of ... read more

Physicists Create New Molecule With Record-Setting Dipole Moment

Apr. 3, 2015 — A proposed pathway to construct quantum computers may be the outcome of research by a physics team that has created a new molecule based on the interaction between a highly-excited type of atom known ... read more

Apr. 3, 2015 — An experiment has revealed an unlikely behavior in a class of materials called frustrated magnets, addressing a long-debated question about the nature of these discontented quantum materials. The ... read more

Apr. 2, 2015 — Shred a document, and you can piece it back together. But send information into a black hole, and it's lost forever. A new study finds that -- contrary to what some physicists have argued for ... read more
