Historic Detection of Gravitational Waves

Feb. 19, 2017 — A scientist who has been involved with nearly every aspect of the development and ultimate success of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO), will give a talk about the ... read more

Turning Up the Heat for Perfect (Nano)diamonds

Feb. 14, 2017 — For use in quantum sensing, the bulk nanodiamond crystal surrounding the point defect must be highly perfect. Any deviation from perfection will adversely affect the quantum behavior of the material. ... read more

Researchers Apply Machine Learning to Condensed Matter Physics

Feb. 13, 2017 — New research demonstrates that machine learning algorithms might play an important role in identifying different phases of condensed ... read more

Feb. 8, 2017 — Researchers report that they are the first to grow a 2-D material with the ability to have many different ... read more

Feb. 8, 2017 — Holographic atomic memory is the first device able to generate single photons on demand in groups of several dozen or more. The device, successfully demonstrated in practice, overcomes one of the ... read more

Measuring Time Without a Clock

Feb. 8, 2017 — Scientists have been able to measure the ultrashort time delay in electron photoemission without using a clock. The discovery has important implications for fundamental research and cutting-edge ... read more

Feb. 7, 2017 — Physicists address a loophole in tests of Bell's inequality with 600-year-old starlight. Results show strong evidence for Einstein's quantum spooky action at a ... read more

Bohr's Quantum Theory Revised

Feb. 7, 2017 — Bohr’s atomic model was utterly revolutionary when it was presented in 1913 but, although it is still taught in schools, it became obsolete decades ago. However, its creator also developed a much ... read more

Feb. 7, 2017 — Using a Bose-Einstein condensate composed of millions of sodium atoms, researchers have observed a sharp magnetically-induced quantum phase transition where they expect to find entangled atomic ... read more

Feb. 3, 2017 — As we saw during the 2016 US election, protecting traditional computer systems, which use zeros and ones, from hackers is not a perfect science. Now consider the complex world of quantum computing, ... read more

Feb. 3, 2017 — When it comes to studying transportation systems, stock markets and the weather, quantum mechanics is probably the last thing to come to mind. However, scientists have just performed a 'proof of ... read more

Feb. 3, 2017 — Researchers have managed to transmit more than 10 bit of information with a single photon. They achieved this using an ingenious method for detecting individual photons. The knowledge gained from ... read more

Feb. 3, 2017 — Researchers working with magnetic nanoparticles approached computational scientists to help solve a unique problem: to model magnetism at the atomic level using experimental data from a real ... read more

Feb. 2, 2017 — A beam of electrons was first observed to be accelerated with a ‘gradient’ – or energy transfer rate - of 300 MV/m, which is very high for present-day accelerators, in a device rather like a ... read more

Feb. 2, 2017 — Physicists have created a basis for accurately testing Einstein's equivalence ... read more

Quantum Matter: Shaken, but Not Stirred

Feb. 2, 2017 — A team of researchers has experimentally realized an exotic quantum system which is robust to mixing by periodic ... read more

Feb. 2, 2017 — A group of scientists has reported the first experimental observation of a first-order phase transition in a dissipative quantum system. Phase transitions are something we often encounter in everyday ... read more

Jan. 31, 2017 — New measurements of neutrino oscillations, observed at the IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole, have shed light on outstanding questions regarding fundamental properties of neutrinos. The ... read more

Jan. 30, 2017 — A UK, Canadian and Italian study has provided what researchers believe is the first observational evidence that our universe could be a vast and complex hologram. Theoretical physicists and ... read more

Jan. 27, 2017 — Surprising direction-dependent effects emerge when light is guided in microscopic structures. This discovery shows promise for both classical and quantum information ... read more
