Physicists retrieve 'lost' information from quantum measurements

Typically when scientists make a measurement, they know exactly what kind of measurement they’re making, and their purpose is to obtain a measurement outcome. But in an “unrecorded measurement,” both the type of measurement and the measurement outcome are unknown. 584 more words

Superfast Light Source Made From Artificial Atom

Superfast light sources can be used, for example, in laser lights, LED lights and in single-photon light sources for quantum technology. New research results show that light sources can be made much faster by using a principle that was predicted theoretically in 1954. 660 more words

The Rise of the Quantum

You might not realise it, but we are currently in the midst of what some are calling the second quantum revolution. From quantum computers to spintronics, from exotic superconductors to unbreakable encryption, we’re moving from the age of passively understanding and using quantum mechanics to the age of actively exploiting and creating quantum mechanical effects to do things previously thought to be impossible. 560 more words
