realistic 3D pictures of the simplest atomic orbitals of hydrogen.… Read the rest
British physicist Brian Cox is challenged by the presenter of Radio 4’s ‘Life Scientific’, Jim Al-Khalili, to explain the rules of quantum mechanics in just a minute. Brian succeeds; while conceding that the idea that everything is inherently probabilistic, is … Read the rest
This video discusses the strange property of light called “wave-particle duality.” Wave-particle duality is the idea that light can behave as both a wave and a particle, depending on how it is measured. Scientists are still not sure how wave-particle … Read the rest
The double-slit experiment has baffled scientists for 200 years.… Read the rest
You’d think the computers of today are so fast and efficient that they can’t possibly get any better. Well, imagine a computing power so vast it can crack encryption codes in the blink of an eye, and simulate complex chemical … Read the rest
Alain Aspect, John Clauser and Anton Zeilinger conducted groundbreaking experiments using entangled quantum states, where two particles behave like a single unit even when they are separated. Their results have cleared the way for new technology based on quantum information.… Read the rest
This video covers physicists (and their intelligence), quantum physics, the double slit experiment, superposition, quantum entanglement and the essence of the world as a virtual reality.… Read the rest
This year’s Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to three scientists for their work in quantum computing.
WSJ science reporter Eric Niiler joins host Zoe Thomas to discuss their work and what it means for the future of superfast computers … Read the rest
Quantum biology examines quantum effects inside cells. This is a tricky field, as physicists are not comfortable working with messy biological systems, while biologists are not comfortable with complex (and seemingly irrelevant) particle physics equations.
But chemists, who straddle the … Read the rest
Quantum computers are the future of … everything.
They’ve been the stuff of science fiction for decades and promised by technology companies for almost as long. Although existing quantum computers can be computed on the fingers of one hand, their … Read the rest
