An international team have succeeded in transforming 20 entangled quantum bits into a state of superposition. This is an important step in the development of quantum computers after the old record of 14 qubits remained unchanged since 2011.
An atom gives off energy and causes many other atoms in its vicinity to emit light as well. This phenomenon is called 'superradiance'. For the first time, this phenomenon has now bean measured in a solid-state system.
Physicists have now demonstrated the world-first simulation of a chemical bond using trapped ion qubits, one of the most promising pathways to full-scale quantum computing.
The researchers managed to bring the motions of two individual vibrating drumheads -- fabricated from metallic aluminium on a silicon chip -- into an entangled quantum state.
Scientists have created, for the first time a three-dimensional skyrmion in a quantum gas. The skyrmion was predicted theoretically over 40 years ago, but only now has it been observed experimentally.
Surprisingly, a quintessential equation of quantum mechanics emerges while studying astronomical disks of orbiting material.
Scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.
Researchers have established a new world efficiency record for quantum dot solar cells, at 13.4 percent.
Scientists think that might be the case, and are looking for a source of extra energy that could generate the magnetic field they observe.
