Inside an Atom's Heart

Using the powerful Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) in US. scientists have shown how it's possible to glean precise details on the arrangement of gold's protons and neutrons using a kind of quantum interference never before seen in an experiment.

Our brains use quantum computation

Quantum brain processes could explain why we can still outperform supercomputers when it comes to unforeseen circumstances, decision making, or learning something new, while the discovery may also shed light on consciousness.

The first-ever quantum circuit has been announced

Australian scientists have created the world's first-ever quantum computer circuit – one that contains all the essential components found on a classical computer chip but at the quantum scale.

Quantum computing in silicon hits 99 % accuracy

Researchers have proven that near error-free quantum computing is possible, paving the way to build silicon-based quantum devices compatible with current semiconductor manufacturing technology.

IBM claims advance in quantum computing

The new chip has 127 "qubits", twice as many as the previous IBM processor. The company called its new Eagle processor "a key milestone on the path towards practical quantum computation".

Physicists supercooled a human-scale object

Scientists have cooled a large, human-scale object to close to its motional ground state. The scientists say they now have a chance to observe the effect of gravity on a massive quantum object.

First entanglement-based quantum network

A team of Dutch researchers reports realization of the first multi-node quantum network, connecting three quantum processors. Their findings mark an important milestone towards the future quantum internet.

Researchers achieve long-distance quantum teleportation

A joint team of researchers was able to use quantum teleportation to send information over a distance of 44km. If successfully implemented, quantum internet would usher a new era of communication.

Quantum algorithm breakthrough

Physicists report the development of a quantum algorithm with the potential to study a class of many-electron quantums system using quantum computers.

Electron 'teleportation' could push quantum computing forward

Quantum teleportation is an key way to transmit info in quantum computing. In a new step forward, researchers say it may be possible between electrons.

Heat energy leaps through empty space

A surprising new study shows that heat energy can leap across a few hundred nanometers of a complete vacuum, thanks to a quantum mechanical phenomenon. It could have profound implications for the design of computer chips and other nanoscale electronic components.

Achieving quantum supremacy

Researchers have made good on their claim to quantum supremacy. Using 53 entangled quantum bits ('qubits'), their Sycamore computer has taken on -- and solved -- a problem considered intractable for classical computers.

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. 

Quantum structures in super-chilled helium may mirror early universe

For the first time, researchers have documented the long-predicted occurrence of 'walls bound by strings' in superfluid helium-3. The existence of such an object may explain how the universe cooled down.

China builds world's first space-ground integrated quantum communication network

The first unbreakable intercontinental message was sent through a space-based quantum communication network.
