A multi-institute research team, which also includes scientists from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), has successfully teleported quantum data between the Canary Islands of La Palma and Tenerife, covering a record distance of 143 km over free space.
This summer, particle physicist at the University of Chicago (UChicago) and researchers at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva reported the discovery of a new particle having a mass between 125-126 GeV, a value lies between the estimated range for the sought-after particle dubbed the Higgs boson.
A study on atomic scale magnetism being conducted at EPFL’s Laboratory for Quantum Magnetism (LQM) may provide researchers a tool to explore new high-temperature superconducting materials that hold potential in lossless electricity transmission.
A research team comprising Robert Nemiroff and colleagues from the Michigan Technological University has demonstrated that the spacetime may not be as foamy as believed by some researchers.
In the latest quest to understand the nature and the origins of the Universe, researchers have suggested that the start of the Universe may be more like freezing of water into ice rather than according to the Big Bang theory.
Scientists have revealed how smaller molecules can be imprisoned within a carbon molecule. This allows the study of wave-like behavior which is considered to be a fundamental property of matter.
Slovakia has made significant advances both in science and technology and its economic development. The government's 2011-2013 innovation policy concentrates on increasing collaboration between the private and public sector for encouraging science education and innovation. The Slovak Academy of Sciences is supporting a wide range of projects, including those in the quantum field.
Quantum computers are capable of achieving processing speeds much greater than current generation of computers. Though they employ quantum mechanisms, quantum computers will still be susceptible to external influences.
The concept of quantum entanglement, which is defined as the correlation between two quantum particles in space, has got more interesting owing to the research carried out at the Institute of Quantum Computing by postdoctoral fellow Eduardo Martin-Martinez.
Researchers from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) of the U.S. Department of Energy and the University of California (UC) Berkeley have for the first time directly observed distinctly quantum optical phenomena, namely amplification and squeezing, in an optomechanical system.
Recently, researchers performing proton collision at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Europe provided proof for the existence of a sought-after particle known as the Higgs boson, which is believed to be responsible for the mass of matter.
Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated the accurate control of rapid acceleration and instantaneous stops of their beryllium ions in an ion trap.
In a study submitted to Physical Review D, a journal of the American Physical Society, astrophysicists from the University of California, Irvine, have discovered that gamma-ray photons originating from the Milky Way galactic center are consistent with the interesting leeway that dark-matter particles are destructing each other in space.
Experimentations utilizing heavy ions at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have made significant advancements in understanding the primordial universe.
A new quantum algorithm for data analysis has been demonstrated by a team of researchers.
