Iain McNay interviews Lothar Schafer, who talks about his recently published book titled ‘Infinite Potential: What Quantum Physics Reveals About How We Should Live Life.’ McNay and Shafer attempt to demystify the subject of Quantum Physics and quantum phenomenon.
Scientists have captured the first ever photo of an electron’s whizzing orbit within a hydrogen atom, thanks to a unique new microscopy technique.
“It’s really cool,” says Jeremy O’Brien, an experimenter at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom, who was not involved in the work. Such time-separated entanglement is predicted by standard quantum theory, O’Brien says, “but it’s certainly not widely appreciated, and I don’t know if it’s been clearly articulated before.”
A quantum internet capable of sending perfectly secure messages has been running at Los Alamos National Labs for the last two and a half years, say researchers.
The word morphic comes from the Greek morphe, meaning form. Morphic fields organize the form, structure and patterned interactions of systems under their influence – including those of animals, plants, cells, proteins, crystals, brains and minds. They are physical in the sense that they are part of nature, though they are not yet mentioned in physics books.
Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku explains the basics of String Theory in four minutes in this clip from his Floating University lecture.
Theoretical physicists have shown that the intense connections generated between particles as established in the quantum law of ‘entanglement’ may hold the key to eventual teleportation of information. Now, new protocol advances solutions for more efficient teleportation – the transport of quantum information at the speed of light.
Breakthrough: MIT Discovers a New State of Matter, a New Kind of Magnetism That Could Revolutionize Data Storage, Long Range Communications_Featured_, Quantum Physics Thursday, December 20th, 2012
Researchers at MIT have discovered a new state of matter with a new kind of magnetism. This new state, called a quantum spin liquid (QSL), could lead to significant advances in data storage. QSLs also exhibit a quantum phenomenon called long-range entanglement, which could lead to new types of communications systems, and more.
Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, whose background is in quantum physics, is interviewed by Lilou Mace. According to Korotkov, there have been tremendous developments in the area of quantum physics. It was proven that we have influence on each other remotely. It was experimentally proven on the quantum level based upon the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen effect. It shows that [...]
In this video, Hank Green tells us about the three physics experiments that he thinks were the most awesome at helping us understand how the universe works…
But a new analysis by J-D. Bancal, S. Pironio, A. Acín, Y-C. Liang, V. Scarani, and N. Gisin shows that any such explanation would inevitably open the door to faster-than-light communication. In other words, quantum entanglement cannot involve the passage of information—even hidden, internal information, inaccessible to experiment—at any velocity, without also allowing for other types of interactions that violate relativity.
The brain doesn’t just compute linearly, but microtubules within the physical brain become quantumly entangled, allowing information from one point in the brain to be transferred to any other point in the brain. Upon death, the quantum state in the brain ceases, and the information dissipates as we once again become part of the universal consciousness.
George Dvorsky | io9.com Back in 2003, Oxford professor Nick Bostrom suggested that we may be living in a computer simulation. In his paper, Bostrom offered very little science to support his hypothesis — though he did calculate the computational requirements needed to pull of such a feat. And indeed, a philosophical claim is one thing, [...]
(Discovery News) Serge Haroche of France and David Wineland of the US won the Nobel Physics Prize on Tuesday for work in quantum physics that could one day open the way to supercomputers. The pair were honored for pioneering experimental experiments in “measuring and manipulation of individual quantum systems,” the jury said in its citation. [...]
What we call reality might actually be the output of a program running on a cosmos-sized quantum computer. (Kurzweil Accelerating Intelligence) Whatever kind of reality you think you’re living in, you’re probably wrong. The universe is a computer, and everything that goes on in it can be explained in terms of information processing, speculates New Scientist in a special [...]
