Quantum experiment shows objective reality does not exist

Scientists have long suspected that quantum mechanics enables two observers to experience different and conflicting realities-- until an experiment was conducted, with the results suggesting that objective reality does not exist. In a study published recently in...

Study shows neutrinos can exhibit quantum superposition states

A team of MIT physicists analyzed the oscillations of neutrinos, the subatomic particles that weakly interact with matter and can pass through our bodies by the billions per second without any effect. The study showed the particles can be in a superposition state,...

Breakthrough in light sources for new quantum technology

Electronic circuits are based on electrons, but one of the most promising technologies for future quantum circuits are photonic circuits, i.e. circuits based on light (photons) instead of electrons. First, it is necessary to be able to create a stream of single photons

Parallel universes - Many worlds (Schrödinger's cat experiment)

One of the greatest secrets of physics we still do not completely understand, is what happens when the smallest things interact with the big things, that is when quantum mechanics meets our everyday world? You have probably heard of a legendary Schrödinger's
