Quantum Physics Experiment Shows Light Behaving as a Wave and a Particle Simultaneously

Damn you, quantum physics! Just as we got used to the mind-boggling fact that light can act as either a wave OR as a particle, a new quantum physics experiment has shown that it [...]

Schrödinger’s Cat is Alive!

Look Out Schrödinger’s Cat, It’s a Trap! T-Shirt Hooray for science! Berkeley physicists have managed to probe the state of a quantum object without collapsing it – the equivalent of taking a peek at Schrödinger’s [...]

Quantum Physicists Create Light Out of Nothing

Someone told you that you can’t create something out of nothing? Why, sure you can! At least in the quirky world of quantum physics. Physicists have created light out of nothing by simulating moving a mirror [...]

Time Travel Through Quantum Entanglement

If you think you’ve got a firm grasp on reality, obviously you’re not a quantum physicist. Recently, a new study by physicists in Australia revealed that quantum entanglement – a puzzling quantum physics phenomenon that Einstein himself called “spooky action at a distance” – also exists in respect to time. I’ll skip the technical explanation (not [...]

A Brand New Form of Matter?

Just when you think that things can’t get any weirder, quantum physics threw us (yet another) curve ball: there may be a brand new form of matter governed by an entirely new branch of physics. Back in 1970, a young physicist working in the Soviet Union made a counterintutive prediction. Vitaly Efimov, now at the University [...]
