Quantum Photon Properties Revealed In Another Particle, The Plasmon
2014-04-04 15:46:00

Jessica Stoller-Conrad, California Institute of Technology For years, researchers have been interested in developing quantum computers—the theoretical next generation of technology that will outperform conventional computers. Instead of holding data in bits, the digital units used by computers today, quantum computers store information in units called "qubits." One approach for computing with qubits relies on the creation of two single photons that interfere with one another in a device...

In this month's issue of Physics World, Felicity Mellor, a senior lecturer in science communication at Imperial College London, questions whether the requirement of the modern physicist to collaborate and communicate is preventing the intellectual progress brought about by silence and solitude. Drawing on the approaches of Newton, Einstein, Cavendish and Dirac, Mellor highlights the recurring role that silence has played throughout the history of physics and asks if the "enforced...

European Researchers Reveal The Physics Of The Secret

[ Watch the Video: Keeping Secrets in a World of Spies and Mistrust ] Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Is it really a secret if researchers share it? In the March 27 issue of Nature, the weekly international journal of science, researchers Artur Ekert and Renato Renner revealed what physics can tell us about keeping our secrets secret. This comes after high profile revelation that the National Security Agency (NSA) had been spying on emails, phone calls and other...

SAN RAFAEL, Calif., March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Often referred to as "The Queen of Quantum Transformation," Julie Renee Doering has successfully helped clients in the Pentagon, the United Nations, and private companies harness the regenerative powers of their bodies. And now Doering, THE Brain Rejuvenation Expert, Master Healer, Speaker, Author and Health Activator, shares these life-changing secrets with readers in two, new quantum healing books, "Your Divine Human Blueprint," and "100%...

vortex multiplication in a quantum fluid
2014-03-26 03:00:39

University of Cambridge Researchers have developed a new mathematical framework capable of describing motions in superfluids – low temperature fluids that exhibit classical as well as quantum behavior. The framework was used to lift the veil of mystery surrounding strange objects in superfluid helium (detected ten years ago at Brown University). The study, conducted by an international collaboration of researchers from the UK, Russia and France is published today in the journal...

A University of Maryland research team provides visual evidence confirming computer simulations of a special type of ripple that dissipates energy in extremely cold liquid helium. The research could lead to advances in superconductors. College Park, MD (PRWEB) March 24, 2014 Draining the water from a bathtub causes a spinning tornado to appear. The downward flow of water into the drain causes the water to rotate, and as the rotation speeds up, a vortex forms that obeys the laws of...

Brake For Spinning Molecules
2014-03-13 15:39:05

Max Planck Institute The precise control of the rotational temperature of molecular ions opens up new possibilities for laboratory-based astrochemistry Chemical reactions taking place in outer space can now be more easily studied on Earth. An international team of researchers from the University of Aarhus in Denmark and the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg, discovered an efficient and versatile way of braking the rotation of molecular ions. The spinning speed of...

Quantum Chaotic Behavior In Ultracold Gas Discovered
2014-03-13 15:02:29

University of Innsbruck The team of Francesca Ferlaino, Institute for Experimental Physics of the University of Innsbruck, Austria, has experimentally shown chaotic behavior of particles in a quantum gas. "For the first time we have been able to observe quantum chaos in the scattering behavior of ultracold atoms," says an excited Ferlaino. The physicists used random matrix theory to confirm their results, thus asserting the universal character of this statistical theory. Nobel laureate...

Cryptography Scheme Secured By Quantum Physics
2014-03-12 14:30:34

Centre for Quantum Technologies The way we secure digital transactions could soon change. An international team has demonstrated a form of quantum cryptography that can protect people doing business with others they may not know or trust – a situation encountered often on the internet and in everyday life, for example at a bank's ATM. "Having quantum cryptography to hand is a realistic prospect, I think. I expect that quantum technologies will gradually become integrated with existing...

Physics

Physics is a natural science involving the study of matter and its motion through space-time, along with related concepts such as energy and force. On a broader scale, it also involves the general analysis of nature, conducted in order to understand how the universe behaves. Physics is one of the oldest academic disciplines, perhaps the oldest through its inclusion of astronomy. Physics was part of natural philosophy until the Scientific Revolution in the 16th century, when the natural...

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...

Multiverse -- The term Multiverse was invented in December 1960, by Andy Nimmo, then vice chairman of the British Interplanetary Society, Scottish Branch, for a talk on the Everett many-worlds interpretation of quantum physics which had been published in 1957, to the branch. This was given in February 1961, and the word with its original definition, "an apparent universe, a multiplicity of which, go to make up the whole universe" was then first used. This was because the then dictionary...
