Inside a small metal box on a laboratory table in Vienna, physicists have engineered, perhaps, the quietest place on Earth. At this level of stillness, our conventional wisdom about motion breaks down, as the bizarre rules of quantum mechanics kick in.
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.
Surprisingly, a quintessential equation of quantum mechanics emerges while studying astronomical disks of orbiting material.
Researchers from two teams now working with Intel have reported advances in a new quantum computing architecture, called spin qubits.
A team from Australia have found a "quantum hack" - a way to modify qubit surface codes, improving quantum error correction by up to four hundred per cent.
Australian and Dutch engineers created a complete design for a quantum computer chip that can be manufactured using mostly standard industry processes.
Researchers have built the most sophisticated quantum computer yet, signaling progress toward a powerful new way of processing information.
Australian researchers have designed a new type of qubit - the building block of quantum computers - that they say will finally make it possible to manufacture a true, large-scale quantum computer.
The results are preliminary, but “confirm the feasibility of a seawater quantum channel, representing the first step towards underwater quantum communication.
Scientists think that might be the case, and are looking for a source of extra energy that could generate the magnetic field they observe.
