JQI lab sets a new record for creating heralded photons HERALDING Entanglement, by general consensus of physicists, is the weirdest part of quantum science. To say that two particles, A and B, are entangled means that they are actually two parts of an inseparable quantum thing. An important consequence of this inherent kinship is that measuring a property of A (say, the particle's polarization) is necessarily to know the corresponding property of B, even if you're not there with a...

No More Loopholes For Photons
2013-04-15 14:53:36

University of Vienna 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. The researchers have thus provided the most complete experimental proof that the quantum world is in conflict with our everyday experience. The results of this study appear this week in the renowned journal Nature (Advance Online Publication/AOP). When we observe an object, we make a number of intuitive assumptions,...

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Solar Power Corp. ("Quantum") (OTCBB: QSPW) Glass Technology As a by-product of research on Quantum's photovoltaic technology, a discovery was made of a way of nano-structuring glass to make it super hydrophobic (water beads and rolls off) and resistant to oil and other materials. Given that the solar panel prices are currently very low as a result of Chinese manufacturers flooding the market with low cost silicon products,...

Transporting At The Speed Of Light Into The Quantum Internet
2013-02-04 10:01:14

AlphaGalileo Not only do optical fibers transmit information every day around the world at the speed of light, but they can also be harnessed for the transport of quantum information. In the current issue of Nature Photonics, a research team of Innsbruck physicists led by Rainer Blatt and Tracy Northup report how they have directly transferred the quantum information stored in an atom onto a particle of light. Such information could then be sent over optical fiber to a distant atom....

Digital Encryption At The Quantum Level
2012-11-20 10:38:18

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Toshiba and Cambridge University have been working together to find a cheaper and more efficient way to protect networks from criminal thievery and spying. To find the answer, these two teams looked to quantum physics, landing on a solution which allows high-speed fiber cables to be just as secure as dedicated fiber optics lines. Though this advance will likely first appear in government and military networks, this method could...

Researchers Reveal New Method For Entangling Photons
2012-11-03 08:24:56

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A research team led by the University of Vienna has developed a new method for entangling single photons that gyrate in opposite directions. This is the first step towards entangling and twisting even macroscopic, spatially separated objects in two different directions, according to the team. The findings of this study have been published in the journal Science. Quantum physics is the theory of lightweight objects such as atoms or...

Two Physicists Win Nobel Prize For Physics in 2012
2012-10-10 06:21:26

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Two physicists, one from the United States and one from France, were revealed on Tuesday October 9, 2012 as winners of the Nobel Prize in Physics. The physicists were recognized for their work in developing techniques to study the relationships of light and matter, and how this relationship could lead to new super fast computers and the most “precise” clocks ever built, according to the Nobel Prize committee in Norway....
