Latest Quantum Stories
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.
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.
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...
