Latest Quantum entanglement Stories
Physicists in Innsbruck/Austria and Geneva/Switzerland realized a new, reliable method to verify entanglement in the laboratory using a minimal number of assumptions about the system and measuring devices.
Almost 200 years ago, Bavarian physicist Joseph von Fraunhofer discovered dark lines in the sun's spectrum. It was later discovered that these spectral lines can be used to infer the chemical composition and temperature of the sun's atmosphere.
Entanglement, by general consensus of physicists, is the weirdest part of quantum science.
According to a groundbreaking announcement, scientists at Los Alamos National Labs in New Mexico have been utilizing a small-scale “quantum internet” for the past two years.
A team led by the Austrian physicist Anton Zeilinger has now carried out an experiment with photons, in which they have closed an important loophole.
"Spooky action at a distance" is how Albert Einstein rather famously described the theory of quantum entanglement. Until now, however, experiments attempting to examine this peculiar quantum mechanical phenomenon have been limited to relatively small distances on Earth.
Albert Einstein, almost unanimously considered the greatest physicist since Sir Isaac Newton, would have turned 134 today. And his legacy has never been as vibrant as it is right now in the realm of modern physics.
Black holes are incredibly difficult objects to understand, partially because their very existence seemingly challenges the physical laws of the Universe. Because of their extreme nature, various peculiarities arise that give scientists pause.
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.
