New record with entangled quantum bits

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. 

Superradiance: Quantum effect detected in tiny diamonds

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.

World-first quantum computer simulation of chemical bonds

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.

NASA to create coldest place in the universe

The agency just launched the Cold Atom Lab, a box that takes advantage of microgravity aboard the International Space Station and creates a temperature roughly 10 billion times colder than the vacuum of space.

Physicists find signs of a time crystal

Physicists have uncovered hints of a time crystal. Time crystals, first identified in 2016, are different from ordinary crystals, - their atoms spin periodically, first in one direction and then in another.

Quantum entanglement in massive atom clouds

Now three independent European research groups have managed to entangle not just a pair of particles, but separated clouds of thousands of atoms.

Quantum entanglement has now been made a reality in objects

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.

A new state of matter

Physicists have identified a new state of matter whose structural order operates by rules more aligned with quantum mechanics than standard thermodynamic theory.

Scientists observe a new quantum particle with properties of ball lightning

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.

Massive astrophysical objects governed by subatomic equation

Surprisingly, a quintessential equation of quantum mechanics emerges while studying astronomical disks of orbiting material.

New type of quantum material

Physicists surprised when their theoretical model pointed to the existence of a never-before-seen material in a different realm of physics -- that of topological quantum materials.

Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

Scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Scientists elevate quantum dot solar cell world record

Researchers have established a new world efficiency record for quantum dot solar cells, at 13.4 percent.

Exotic quantum states made from light

Physicists create optical 'wells' for a super-photon for the first time.

Quantum Mechanics Could Shake Up Our Understanding of Earth’s Magnetic Field

Scientists think that might be the case, and are looking for a source of extra energy that could generate the magnetic field they observe.
