A new series of studies led by researchers from Tel Aviv University, the Technion and MIT has found that some properties of light waves emitted from particles depend on the wave properties of the emitting particles.
An international team of researchers, headed by the researchers from the Center for Quantum Materials at the University of Minnesota, were surprised to discover that deformations in quantum materials that cause imperfections in the crystal structure have the potential to enhance the superconducting and electrical characteristics of the material.
Nothing is perfect, not even the indifferent, calculating bits that make up the basis of computers.
Using organic DAST crystals pumped with mid-IR pulses, researchers have created an exceptionally strong terahertz field that can directly drive a large change in transmission of a visible probe pulse in quantum dots.
A missing carbon atom in the crystal lattice creates a so-called defect or “vacancy,” which is where the color in a diamond arises.
Osaka University and Fujitsu reported the setting up of the Fujitsu Quantum Computing Joint Research Division as a joint research division at the Center for Quantum Information and Quantum Biology (hereinafter QIQB) of Osaka University.
Researchers have discovered a complex landscape of electronic states that can co-exist on a kagome lattice, resembling those in high-temperature superconductors, a team of Boston College physicists reports in an advance electronic publication of the journal Nature.
Researchers from Skoltech and the University of Southampton, U.K., used all-optical methods to create an artificial lattice whose nodes house polaritons - quasiparticles that are half-light and half-matter excitations in semiconductors.
A quantum chemistry research team led by Dr Jun YANG from the Department of Chemistry at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) has developed an extensive and widely applicable computational technique using high-level quantum chemistry algorithms to reveal complex electron and energy transfer pathways in photophysical processes.
This paper summarizes recent works on quantum optics based on micro/nano structures. Since its birth, quantum optics has been full of controversies with the locality and reality of classical physics versus the non-locality and uncertainty of quantum physics.
Engineers and materials scientists studying superconducting quantum information bits (qubits)-a leading quantum computing material platform based on the frictionless flow of paired electrons-have collected clues hinting at the microscopic sources of qubit information loss.
At the National Astronomical Observatories of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (NAOC), astronomers have disclosed a wobbly, flared Milky Way disk using LAMOST-Gaia data, which updates one’s knowledge about the disk.
The most powerful telescope in the world is scheduled to be launched into space this year. When that happens, researchers will be able to discover whether Earth-sized planets in the “solar neighborhood” have a vital precondition for life — an atmosphere.
A team led by the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory has found a rare quantum material in which electrons move in coordinated ways, essentially "dancing."
The earliest solids formed in the solar system give clues to what radioactive species were made by the young sun, and which ones were inherited. By studying isotopic variations of the elements vanadium (V) and strontium (Sr), an international team of researchers including scientists from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory found that those variations are not caused by irradiation from the sun but are produced by condensation and evaporation reactions in the early solar system.
