A new study shows that heat energy can leap across a few hundred nanometers of a complete vacuum, thanks to a quantum mechanical phenomenon called the Casimir interaction. It could have profound implications for the design of computer chips.

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.
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.
Using quantum tunneling to harvest electricity from Earth’s radiant heat involves a specifically designed antenna that can identify this excess heat as high-frequency electromagnetic waves.
Even though we cannot physically access the 4D world, being aware of its existence will pave the way to future discoveries and a better understanding of our Universe.
Scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.
The results are preliminary, but “confirm the feasibility of a seawater quantum channel, representing the first step towards underwater quantum communication.
An team of German researchers recently conducted an experiment that has once again proven that quantum entanglement is possible.
