Latest Quantum state Stories
The weird world of quantum mechanics describes the strange, often contradictory, behaviour of small inanimate objects such as atoms.
Max Planck physicists develop an experiment to investigate the random motion of quantum particles.
Chaotic behavior is the rule, not the exception, in the world we experience through our senses, the world governed by the laws of classical physics.
In comparison to classical physics, quantum physics predicts that the properties of a quantum mechanical system depend on the measurement context, i.e. whether or not other system measurements are carried out.
Researchers at UC Santa Barbara have recently demonstrated a breakthrough in the quantum control of photons, the energy quanta of light.
Exquisitely sensitive microwave amplifier increases nano-scale measurement accuracy; could lead to quantum computing breakthroughs.
For the first time, scientists have successfully teleported information between two separate atoms in unconnected enclosures a meter apart â€“ a significant milestone in the global quest for practical quantum information processing.
A team of European scientists has proved conclusively that photons remain entangled over a distance of 144 kilometers, through the atmosphere and into space.
