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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Scientists from Switzerland recently reengineered their data processing, demonstrating that 16 million atoms were entangled in a one-centimeter crystal.
An team of German researchers recently conducted an experiment that has once again proven that quantum entanglement is possible.
