Scientists Make Strides Toward Quantum Computing
2012-07-04 04:33:58

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Harvard scientists claim that they have solved a problem faced in quantum computing by using diamonds. One challenge quantum computing has faced is creating quantum bits that exist in a solid-state system at room temperature. Most systems rely on complex and expensive equipment designed to trap an atom or electron in a vacuum, and then cool the entire system to nearly absolute zero, or –459.67° Fahrenheit. The Harvard team...

A Kansas State University-led quantum mechanics study has discovered a new bound state in atoms that may help scientists better understand matter and its composition. The yet-unnamed bound state, which the physicists simply refer to as "our state" in their study, applies to three identical atoms loosely bound together -- a behavior called three-body bound states in quantum mechanics. In this state, three atoms can stick together in a group but two cannot. Additionally, in some cases, the...

Tevatron Announces Find Higgs Finding Ahead Of CERN's July 4 Announcement
2012-07-02 14:17:21

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Tevatron scientists have made a lackluster announcement before Wednesday's big event, by admitting they are still uncertain about the existence of the God particle. Just two days before the highly anticipated announcement of the latest Higgs-search results come out from the Large Hadron Collider in Europe, the U.S. Department of Energy´s Tevatron collider scientists failed to announce a finding first, but did present more...

CERN, LHC, Higgs Boson
2012-06-29 05:47:22

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, will present preliminary findings from its search for the Higgs Boson, the so-called ℠God particle´, on July 4 as an international physics conference gets underway, the Geneva-based organization said on Thursday. The announcement will include the latest results from ATLAS and CMS, two major experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) that are searching for the...

USC scientists demonstrate that quantum computing could speed up the way web page ranks are calculated on the ever-expanding Internet Most people don't think twice about how Internet search engines work. You type in a word or phrase, hit enter, and poof — a list of web pages pops up, organized by relevance. Behind the scenes, a lot of math goes into figuring out exactly what qualifies as most relevant web page for your search. Google, for example, uses a page ranking algorithm...

Classical Physics: Breaking The Limits
2012-06-07 09:24:12

With simple arguments, researchers show that nature is complicated! Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have made a simple experiment that demonstrates that nature violates common sense — the world is different than most people believe. The experiment illustrates that light does not behave according to the principles of classical physics, but that light has quantum mechanical properties. The new method could be used to study whether other systems behave quantum mechanically. The...

Physicists from the University of Bonn split an atom using quantum mechanics precision Researchers from the University of Bonn have just shown how a single atom can be split into its two halves, pulled apart and put back together again. While the word "atom" literally means "indivisible," the laws of quantum mechanics allow dividing atoms - similarly to light rays - and reuniting them. The researchers want to build quantum mechanics bridges by letting the atom touch adjacent atoms while it...

Invisibility, once the subject of magic or legend, is slowly becoming reality. Over the past five years mathematicians and other scientists have been working on devices that enable invisibility cloaks — perhaps not yet concealing Harry Potter, but at least shielding small objects from detection by microwaves or sound waves. A University of Washington mathematician is part of an international team working to understand invisibility and extend its possible applications. The group has...

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...

Open Systems & Information Dynamics
2012-05-17 15:20:56

Open Systems & Information Dynamics (OSID) is journal published by World Scientific. The aim of the Journal is to promote interdisciplinary research in mathematics, physics, engineering and life sciences centered around the issues of broadly understood information processing, storage and transmission, in both quantum and classical settings. Our special interest lies in the information-theoretic approach to phenomena dealing with dynamics and thermodynamics, control, communication,...

Foundations of Physics

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...
