Researchers limit experimental Free Will to fake Quantum Entanglement

University of California San Diego

Researchers derived a new set of modified Bell inequalities that apply to cases in which either or both experimenters have only limited freedom to select measurements. They constructed local realist models that mimicked predictions of quantum theory by yielding correlations exceeding Bell’s original inequality.

Faster Than Allowed by Quantum Computing?

University of Vienna

Quantum computers are more powerful than classical computers since they work with coherent "quantum bits"; instead of ordinary zeroes and ones. But what if the laws of nature were different from what we think today – could there be even more efficient "science fiction computers"Researchers from the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the University of Vienna have now shown that this is not possible – as long as those machines satisfy the same construction principles as ordinary circuits and their quantum counterparts.

How does a quantum particle see the world?

University of Vienna

Researchers at the University of Vienna study the relevance of quantum reference frames for the symmetries of the worldAccording to one of the most fundamental principles in physics, an observer on a moving train uses the same laws to describe a ball on the platform as an observer standing on the platform – physical laws are independent on the choice of a reference frame.

Brilliant Glow of Paint-On Semiconductors Comes from Ornate Quantum Physics

Georgia Institute of Technology

A new wave of semiconductors that can be painted on is on the horizon. It bears the promise of revolutionizing lighting all over again and of transforming solar energy. Ornate quantum particle action, revealed here, that drives the new material's properties defies the workings of established semiconductors.

More stable light comes from intentionally ‘squashed’ quantum dots

Los Alamos National Laboratory

Intentionally “squashing” colloidal quantum dots during chemical synthesis creates dots capable of stable, “blink-free” light emission that is fully comparable with the light produced by dots made with more complex processes.

Quantum computing steps further ahead with new projects at Sandia

Sandia National Laboratories

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Quantum computing is a term that periodically flashes across the media sky like heat lightning in the desert: brilliant, attention-getting and then vanishing from the public’s mind with no apparent aftereffects.Yet a multimillion dollar international effort to build quantum computers is hardly going away.
