Latest Quantum Stories
Scientists from Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have joined forces to create a never-before-seen form of matter that is said to behave like the legendary light sabers of Star Wars fame.
By means of the quantum-mechanical entanglement of spatially separated light fields, researchers in Tokyo and Mainz have managed to teleport photonic qubits with extreme reliability.
Since Erwin Schroedinger's famous 1935 cat thought experiment, physicists around the globe have tried to create large scale systems to test how the rules of quantum mechanics apply to everyday objects.
Objects that are smaller than the wavelength of thermal radiation cannot radiate heat efficiently. A generalized theory of thermal radiation has now been experimentally confirmed at the level of a single object at the Vienna University of Technology.
Entanglement, by general consensus of physicists, is the weirdest part of quantum science.
Classical and Quantum Gravity is a peer-reviewed journal published by IOP Science. As of May 2012, the editor-in-chief is Clifford M Will (Washington University, St. Louis). The journal covers all aspects of gravitational physics and the theory of space-time. It scope includes: Classical general relativity, Applications of relativity, Experimental gravitation, Cosmology and the early universe, Quantum gravity, Supergravity, superstrings and supersymmetry, and Mathematical physics relevant...
