To exploit the quantum world to the fullest, a key commodity is entanglement"”the spooky, distance-defying link that can form between objects such as atoms even when they are completely shielded from one another. Now, physicists at the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI), a collaborative organization of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Maryland, have developed a promising new source of entangled photons using quantum dots tweaked with a laser....

University of Michigan physicists have created the first atomic-scale maps of quantum dots, a major step toward the goal of producing "designer dots" that can be tailored for specific applications. Quantum dots"”often called artificial atoms or nanoparticles"”are tiny semiconductor crystals with wide-ranging potential applications in computing, photovoltaic cells, light-emitting devices and other technologies. Each dot is a well-ordered cluster of atoms, 10 to 50 atoms in...

Scientists at MIT have figured out a key step toward the design of quantum information networks. The results are reported in the July 20th issue of Physical Review Letters and highlighted in APS's on-line journal Physics (physics.aps.org). A quantum network "“ in which memory devices that store quantum states are interconnected with quantum information processing devices "“ is a prototype for designing a quantum internet. One path to making a quantum network is to map a light...

As the world celebrates Charles Darwin, who was born 200 years ago, physicists can be forgiven a certain jealousy at the spotlight being placed on his profound legacy. But physicists have in fact had a huge impact on biology "“ no more so than in helping to discover the structure of DNA and in developing medical-imaging techniques like MRI. The July issue of Physics World marks those achievements and examines at some of the ways in which current ideas in physics are still changing...

The idea that far distant particles can somehow 'talk' to each other worried Einstein so much that he called it 'spooky action at a distance'.Having confirmed its existence, scientists today are learning how to use this 'spooky action' as a helpful tool. Now a team of physicists at the University of Bristol and Imperial College London have harnessed this phenomenon to shed light on another unusual and previously difficult aspect of quantum physics - that of distinguishing between two similar...

British actor Daniel Craig, who has starred in many acclaimed arthouse films, says he is amazed by how well his James Bond movies do at the box office. The "Munich,""Sylvia" and "Infamous" actor starred as secret agent 007 in the enormous 2006 hit "Casino Royale," as well as its sequel "Quantum of Solace," which is already a blockbuster in the United Kingdom, where it opened two weeks ago. It opened in the United States Friday. "It's great," Craig told UPI in New York Thursday about the...

By Claudia Puig In Quantum of Solace (**1/2 out of four), the stunts are as muscular and the film as handsome to look at as the hero who so ably pulls them off. But the story linking it all together is thin and weak. James Bond, again terrifically played by Daniel Craig, continues on a downward spiral of the spirit. He has not been the same carefree playboy since the death of Vesper (Eva Green), the true love he found in 2006's Casino Royale. Now he is bent on avenging her death, and his...
