“Most people just get used to the concept and get on with their lives.” Roger McLassus

Explainer: what is wave-particle duality

Our notion of reality is built on everyday experiences. But wave-particle duality is so strange that we are forced to re-examine our common conceptions. Wave-particle duality refers to the fundamental…
One day we may have a global quantum internet. Robert Couse-Baker"

Explainer: quantum computation and communication technology

What is a quantum technology? Quantum mechanics is the branch of physics that explains the behaviour of matter and energy at the atomic scale. So does “quantum technology’’ just mean technology based on…
A world-first image with implications for everything from quantum computing to microbiology. Kielpinksi Group/Centre for Quantum Dynamics

Snapping an atom’s shadow? Now that’s a first

As the image above illustrates, my colleagues and I at Griffith University have been able to photograph the shadow of an atom for the first time – the culmination of five years of work by our team. The…
Developments on the atomic scale are set to open a whole new world of problem solving. ~jjjohn~

Compute this: the quantum future is crystal clear

Supercomputers have enabled breakthroughs in our ability to tackle a huge array of problems, from detailed studies of protein folding, to the dynamics of the Earth’s atmosphere and climate. Current research…

A new record for quantum entanglement

In a significant step forward, researchers have created a quantum system entangling eight photons, eclipsing the previous…
