Self-assembled logic circuits created from proteins

 Quantum Physics News
 28 April 2022
In a proof-of-concept study, researchers have created self-assembled, protein-based circuits that can perform simple logic functions. The work demonstrates that it is possible to create stable digital circuits that take advantage of an electron's properties at quantum scales. ...

In Einstein's footsteps and beyond

 Quantum Physics News
 27 April 2022
Physicists are re-examining the foundations of quantum physics from the perspective of momentum and exploring what happens when the momentum of light is reduced to zero. ...

Exotic magnetic structures created with laser light

 Quantum Physics News
 25 April 2022
Research has found a new way to create nano-sized magnetic particles using ultrafast laser light pulses. The discovery could pave the way for new and more energy-efficient technical components and become useful in the quantum computers of the future. ...

New and surprising duality found in theoretical particle physics

 Quantum Physics News
 25 April 2022
A new and surprising duality has been discovered in theoretical particle physics. The duality exists between two types of scattering processes that can occur in the proton collisions made in the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland and France. The fact that this connection can, surprisingly,...

Topological synchronization of chaotic systems

 Quantum Physics News
 22 April 2022
Can we find order in chaos? Physicists have shown, for the first time that chaotic systems can synchronize due to stable structures that emerge from chaotic activity. These structures are known as fractals, shapes with patterns which repeat over and over again in different scales of the shape. As...

Two teams use neutral atoms to create quantum circuits

 Quantum Physics News
 22 April 2022
Two teams of researchers working independently have shown the viability of using neutral atoms to create quantum circuits—both have published outlines of their work in the journal Nature. One of the groups, with members from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, ColdQuanta and Riverlane,...
