Until recently measuring a 27-dimensional quantum state would have been a time-consuming, multistage process using a technique called quantum tomography, which is similar to creating a 3D image from many 2D ones.

Pixidis researcher Tom Whitney of Minneapolis has achieved the Holy Grail quest of modern physical science: the discovery of Einstein's famed unified field equation.

New Light Shed On Mystery Mechanism That Allows Positive And Negative Charges To Be Separated Efficiently
2013-12-13 10:17:11

By using an ultrafast camera, scientists say they have observed the very first instants following the absorption of light into artificial yet organic nanostructures and found that charges not only formed rapidly but also separated very quickly over long distances - phenomena that occur due to the wavelike nature of electrons which are governed by fundamental laws of quantum mechanics.

Wormholes Driving Quantum Entanglement
2013-12-04 15:25:47

Two physicists have theorized that wormholes could be the cause behind the bizarre phenomenon known as quantum entanglement.

Making Magnets With Ultra Cold Atoms

Magnets have fascinated mankind for millenia. From the Greek philosophers to scientists of the modern era, which saw the rise of quantum mechanics, magnets have been pondered and investigated.

Decay Used To Create Quantum Information
2013-11-25 09:47:26

Usually, when researchers work with quantum information, they do everything they can to prevent the information from decaying. Now researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute, among others, have flipped things around and are exploiting the decay to create the so-called entanglement of atomic systems, which is the foundation for quantum information processing.

International Research Team Shows Distant Artificial Atoms Cooperate By Sharing Light
2013-11-14 15:52:07

An international team of scientists has shown for the first time that atoms can work collectively rather than independently of each other to share light.

Single-Atom Light Switch

With just a single atom, light can be switched between two fiber optic cables at the Vienna University of Technology. Such a switch enables quantum phenomena to be used for information and communication technology.

Niels Henrik David Bohr (October 7, 1885 - November 18, 1962) was a Danish physicist. He made essential contributions to understanding atom structure and quantum mechanics. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark to Christian Bohr and Ellen Adler, Bohr got his doctorate at Copenhagen University in 1911. He then studied under Ernest Rutherford in Manchester, England. Based on Rutherford's theories, Bohr published his Bohr model about atom structure in 1913, introducing the theory of electrons...

bretelles
  • In dressmaking, straps running from the belt in front over the shoulders to the belt in the back, with more or less elaboration of trimming and outline. They usually broaden at the shoulder and narrow toward the waist.
The word 'bretelles' comes from a French word meaning 'braces'.
