We usually think of quantum entanglement in the realm of atomic systems, but now it's been scaled up to relatively massive objects. This opens the door to new kinds of technology.
If an alien landed on Earth, how would you decide if it had free will like us, or was a sophisticated automaton?
A future that continues to have increasingly fast computing depends on quantum physics – but research is showing that there are limits to how fast quantum computers can go.
As companies make quantum computers available through their cloud services, take a look at what it means for computing to move beyond classical mechanics and into quantum physics.
The 'entangled' light particles spookily interact with each other at huge distances.
Einstein called entanglement "spooky action at a distance”. But now it's been used to design an incredibly sensitive detection method for gravitational waves.
One of the great mysteries of the universe is why there is so much more matter than antimatter. Now a new experiment is helping us understand the nature of antimatter better than ever before.
A new technique can remove noise from tiny electronic circuits, raising hopes of extremely efficient electronics and quantum technologies.
The Micius satellite will encrypt data using fundamental laws of physics rather than crackable codes.
Forget solid, liquid, gas. This research used advanced math to theorize about topological phases of matter. And over the years experiments with matter and cold atoms have been validating the ideas.
Physicists have theorised about the existence of a magnetic monopole for decades, but we have yet to find one.
Here's how they could revolutionise science.
As the components in electronic devices are shrinking to the nanoscale, even a single atom out of place can disrupt their function. But this also presents an opportunity to make them even better.
Testing the bizarre theory of quantum mechanics isn't easy, but scientists are making progress.
Scientists say they've have closed the loopholes on an experiment that tests a half-century old theory in quantum mechanics.So what does it reveal?
The idea that our universe is just one in a 'multiverse' of parallel universes is increasingly gathering attention from cosmologists. But can we ever test the theory?
The information paradox is one of the great mysteries in our understanding of black holes. But has the famous theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking found the solution?
We may have to rewrite physics textbooks after a material that can act both like a conductor and an insulator simultaneously has been discovered.
As hackers get more sophisticated in their cyber crime efforts we need to look to new technology to make our systems more secure, and potentially unhackable. So how can quantum physics help?
It's time we embraced quantum mechanics and stopped trying to explain away its weirdness.
