Nothing Seems To Stop Quantum Teleportation
2014-09-22 03:25:34

Université de Genève Physicists at the University of Geneva (UNIGE) have succeeded in teleporting the quantum state of a photon to a crystal over 25 kilometers of optical fiber. The experiment, carried out in the laboratory of Professor Nicolas Gisin, constitutes a first, and simply pulverizes the previous record of 6 kilometers achieved ten years ago by the same UNIGE team. Passing from light into matter, using teleportation of a photon to a crystal, shows that, in quantum physics, it...

Discovery Of The 'Most Famous Wheat Gene' Clears Way To Breed Better, Non-GMO Wheat
2014-09-17 03:35:16

By Eric Sorensen, Washington State University Washington State University researchers have found “the most famous wheat gene,” a reproductive traffic cop of sorts that can be used to transfer valuable genes from other plants to wheat. The discovery clears the way for breeders to develop wheat varieties with the disease- and pest-resistance traits of other grasses, using a legion of genetic tools that can reduce crop losses and pesticide use while foregoing the cost, regulatory...
