A group of physicists in China has taken the lead in the race to couple together increasing numbers of superconducting qubits. The researchers have shown that they can entangle 10 qubits connected to one another via a central resonator – so beating the previous record...
Quantum interference involving three photons has been measured by two independent teams of physicists. Seeing the effect requires the ability to deliver three indistinguishable photons to the same place at the same time and also to ensure that much more common single-photon...
Dark matter is difficult to study. Since it doesn't interact with light, it is basically invisible. But it does have mass, and that means it deflects light ever so slightly, an effect known as weak gravitational lensing.
Scientists claim to have created a fluid with negative mass, meaning it behaves unlike every physical object in the world. When an object with mass is pushed, it will accelerate in the direction of the force, whereas one with negative...
Us Earthlings are quite lucky to be living at around standard temperature and pressure. Life has evolved to comfortably handle the shapes in which most molecules have arranged themselves under temperatures of about 32 degrees Fahrenheit and atmospheric pressures of an average...
More than 40 years ago, a leading relativity theorist made a surprising prediction. Whereas empty space should feel immeasurably cold to any observer gliding along at a constant speed, one who is accelerating, say because he's...
