The quantum nature of light can be harnessed for a variety of purposes.
The universe has a finite age — 13.8 billion years to be exact. So if it had a beginning, why is it so difficult to say for sure whether it will have an end?
New experiments could help scientists settle the longstanding debate about whether consciousness is generated by quantum activity.
Einstein was awarded a Nobel prize for his explanation for how light can be described as being made up of individual particles of energy under certain conditions.
If God could break the laws of physics, why haven’t we seen any evidence of the laws ever being broken in the universe?
Chinese American physicist Wu worked on the Manhattan Project and performed groundbreaking experiments throughout her long career.
We identify an experimental method which could finally reveal whether objects much larger than atoms - such as humans or animals - can exist in several places at once.
New research shows how the next generation of ultra-secure communication could be possible with existing infrastructure.
Amid trying times, the collaboration between Western science and Eastern philosophy provides numerous health benefits and a path to understanding the natural world.
Generating energy usually means wasted heat. Semiconductors let the electrons flow with zero waste – but so far scientists only know how to get them to work at ultra-low temperatures.
Albert Einstein may have been the ultimate example of a visionary genius, but that did not stop him from twice losing his way due to beliefs that were perhaps not so scientific.
If it’s impossible to accurately predict the future then there may be limits to how smart artificial intelligence can become.
Google claims quantum supremacy – IBM says not so fast. One researcher explains why he doesn’t see quantum computers outpacing classical computers any time soon … and maybe not ever.
To protect the futures of today’s children and youth, schools and universities must go beyond Eurocentric approaches that dissect particulars yet miss the larger point.
Manufacturing quantum computers would be a lot easier with existing technology than the exotic components currently used to build them.
When seconds stretch into minutes.
Heisenberg’s famous Uncertainty Principle is put to the test to see if things really are uncertain in the quantum world.
Entanglement is the mysterious relationship between two connected atoms. This relationship is the basis of quantum physics, but what is it exactly?
Plenty of movies have tried to play with time travel to help develop their plot. But Avengers: Endgame adds a little quantum mechanics into the mix as well.
Quantum machine learning is an exciting and rapidly growing field.
