A new method for entwining the fates of fragments of light has overcome some serious obstacles on the road to photon-based quantum computing.
Scientists successfully produced the largest hybrid particles of light and matter ever created. These quasiparticles were made with the help of a piece of stone containing cuprous oxide crystals from an ancient deposit in Namibia.
Physicists have just taken an amazing step towards quantum devices that sound like something out of science fiction.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This quantum battery is a tiny, nano-size battery meant to be used for applications on the nano scale but the research provides a theoretical demonstration that creating a loss-free quantum battery is possible.
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.
