Things get weird at the quantum level and now we know they can happen really fast when a particle pushes through an almost insurmountable barrier.
The study of innovation in large companies and start-ups would benefit from being inspired by physics, which mobilizes different sets of laws for large masses and particles.
From a mysterious energy of empty space to parallel universes, cosmology's view of 'nothing' is anything but boring.
Physicists have designed an electrical component that breaks time-reversal symmetry. Not quite the time machine from Hollywood but it should help with communication technology and quantum computing.
A podcast on intuition: from how it works in the body, to how to harness it, and the story of two scientists who followed a hunch – about quantum biology.
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.
Stephen Hawking was a highly creative scientist, pushing past assumptions and playing with "what if" scenarios to take physics to new levels.
Maths and science featured strongly in the 2018 Australian of the Year Awards. Along with physicist Michelle Simmons, maths teacher Eddie Woo and biologist Graham Farquhar were recognised.
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.
Researchers' views depend in part on what technology is (or will be) capable of – and in part on what consciousness actually is.
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.
Quantum computing is being described as "just around the corner". Is it?
Many scientists thought it was impossible, but one team has finally done it. They say operating their quantum computer is just like playing a game of Pacman.
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.
Much of the current research in quantum computing involves work at close to absolute zero. A simple breakthough with an everyday material could see them work at more acceptable temperatures.
Here's how they could revolutionise science.
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?
There will be a quantum leap in securing online confidentiality with key distribution technology.
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?
