Artificial intelligence designs better quantum experiments

Quantum science is so difficult to grasp — even for scientists — that a doctoral student designed an algorithm to better design experiments.

Quantum science helps track explosives

London - Scientists report on a new step towards a more efficient monitoring method, using quantum dots, to quickly sniff out and identify five dangerous compounds.

Scientists show future events decide what happens in the past

An experiment by Australian scientists has proven that what happens to particles in the past is only decided when they are observed and measured in the future. Until such time, reality is just an abstraction.

Op-Ed: Do quantum or classical physics rule? MIT wants to find out

Sydney - The dichotomy between classical Newtonian physics and quantum physics has created more than a few tense debates. Which are the dominant/presiding physical laws? MIT has proposed an experiment to settle this vexed question.

Op-Ed: The God particle has finally been discovered

On Wednesday, 4 July 2012, in Geneva, Switzerland, scientists working at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced that they have found the elusive Higgs boson particles, sometimes referred to as the God particle.

Viennese university physicists create first quantum twin atoms

Vienna - Will the first quantum twin atoms experience quantum entanglement? In the mysterious world of quantum physics, quantum particles, even at a distance, share similar physical properties. Physicists have created the world's first quantum twin atoms.

Physicist: Large Hadron Collider could be used as time machine

Geneva - Physics of the impossible? Or physics of the future? One physicist believes the world's largest atom smasher, the Large Hadron Collider, could double as a time machine that could allow people to go back in time.

Strings of photons are the future of IT encryption

Quantum physics can bring good news to all those who want to conduct totally secure communications over IT networks - particularly financial institutions. Strings of photons are affected when they are observed and this fact can be used in IT encryption.

From Big Bang to Big Bounce- are we living in a recycled universe?

Quantum physics has been added to Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity to produce a model of the creation of the universe. The new theory is called Loop Quantum Gravity. It's about as simple as it sounds.

In the July 14, 1995 issue of Science magazine, researchers from JILA reported achieving a temperature far lower than had ever been produced before and creating an entirely new state of matter predicted decades ago by Albert Einstein and Indian physicist Satyendra Nath Bose. Cooling rubidium atoms to less than 170 billionths of a degree above absolute zero caused the individual atoms to condense into a "superatom" behaving as a single entity.
