Latest Measurement in quantum mechanics Stories
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.
A team of physicists at the University of Innsbruck, Austria, performed an experiment that seems to contradict the foundations of quantum theory – at first glance.
Quantum mechanics is famous for saying that a tree falling in a forest when there's no one there doesn't make a sound.
Researchers have devised a new kind of random number generator, for encrypted communications and other uses, that is cryptographically secure, inherently private and â€“ most importantly â€“ certified random by laws of physics.
