Heat energy leaps through empty space

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.

Novel quantum state of matter discovered

US researchers have discovered a quantum state of matter that is 10 times more tuneable than existing theories can explain. This opens enormous possibilities for next-generation nanotechnologies and quantum computing.

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.

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.

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.

New quantum tunneling application captures electricity from Earth's heat

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.

Scientists discover the existence of 4D, one more invisible 'spatial dimension'

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.

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.
