New paths into the world of quasiparticles

Academics / General Science : Science Daily (3 months ago)

Quasiparticles can be used to explain physical phenomena in solid bodies even though they are not actual physical particles. Physicists have now realized quasiparticles in a quantum system and observed quantum mechanical entanglemen... Read Post

A bridge to the quantum world: Dirac electrons found in unique material

Academics / General Science : Science Codex (2 years ago)

ANN ARBOR—In a discovery that helps clear a new path toward quantum computers, University of Michigan physicists have found elusive Dirac electrons in a superconducting material. Quantum computers use atoms themselves to perform pro... Read Post

A new approach to on-chip quantum computing

Academics / General Science : Science Codex (3 hours ago)

WASHINGTON, Oct. 2, 2014—Commercial devices capable of encrypting information in unbreakable codes exist today, thanks to recent quantum optics advances, especially the generation of photon pairs—tiny entangled particles of light. N... Read Post
