Researchers discover 'neutronic molecules'

 Quantum Physics News
 03 April 2024
Researchers have discovered 'neutronic' molecules, in which neutrons can be made to cling to quantum dots, held just by the strong force. The finding may lead to new tools for probing material properties at the quantum level and exploring new kinds of quantum information processing devices....

Researchers visualize quantum effects in electron waves

 Quantum Physics News
 03 April 2024
One of the most fundamental interactions in physics is that of electrons and light. In an experiment at Goethe University Frankfurt, scientists have now managed to observe what is known as the Kapitza-Dirac effect for the first time in full temporal resolution. This effect was first postulated more...

Sunrise to sunset, new window coating blocks heat -- not view

 Quantum Physics News
 03 April 2024
Windows welcome light into interior spaces, but they also bring in unwanted heat. A new window coating blocks heat-generating ultraviolet and infrared light and lets through visible light, regardless of the sun's angle. The coating can be incorporated onto existing windows or automobiles and can...

100 kilometers of quantum-encrypted transfer

 Quantum Physics News
 02 April 2024
Researchers have taken a big step towards securing information against hacking. They have succeeded in using quantum encryption to securely transfer information 100 kilometers via fiber optic cable -- roughly equivalent to the distance between Oxford and London....

Magnetic avalanche triggered by quantum effects

 Quantum Physics News
 28 March 2024
Scientists have shown that Barkhausen noise can be produced not only through traditional, or classical means, but through quantum mechanical effects. The research represents an advance in fundamental physics and could one day have applications in creating quantum sensors and other electronic...

Quantum computing just got hotter: One degree above absolute zero

 Quantum Physics News
 28 March 2024
For decades, the pursuit of quantum computing has struggled with the need for extremely low temperatures, mere fractions of a degree above absolute zero (0 Kelvin or –273.15°C). That's because the quantum phenomena that grant quantum computers their unique computational abilities can only be...
