First Steps Towards Quantum Artificial Intelligence (Quantum)

New research by a team from Los Alamos National Laboratory shows that Quantum Convolutional Neural Networks (Qcnn) do not have the Barren Plateau problem. According to Nicolò Parmiggiani (Inaf), the two theorems demonstrated in the study published in Physical Review X are very important for guaranteeing the applicability of Qcnn and for the future of quantum … Continue reading First Steps Towards Quantum Artificial Intelligence (Quantum)

Can We Manipulate Matter Like Thanos? (Quantum / Superhero)

Being able to manipulate matter has been a long-standing goal in material science. Would it not be amazing if we could control matter on the grand scale that Thanos does when in possession of the Infinity Stones in Avengers: Infinity War? Now, Ravensteijn and colleagues evaluated how far mankind has come in the pursuit of … Continue reading Can We Manipulate Matter Like Thanos? (Quantum / Superhero)

Quantum Materials Cloak Thermal Radiation (Material Science)

The Science Scientists demonstrated that ultrathin films of samarium nickel oxide can mask the thermal radiation emitted by hot materials. Samarium nickel oxide is a quantum material. These are materials that have strange and incredible properties due to quantum mechanics. The cloaking mechanism is due to the material undergoing a unique, gradual transition from insulator … Continue reading Quantum Materials Cloak Thermal Radiation (Material Science)

Physicists Built Mathematical ‘Playground’ To Study Quantum Information (Physics / Maths)

In a new study from Skoltech and the University of Kentucky, researchers found a new connection between quantum information and quantum field theory. This work attests to the growing role of quantum information theory across various areas of physics. The paper was published in the journal Physical Review Letters. Quantum information plays an increasingly important role as an … Continue reading Physicists Built Mathematical ‘Playground’ To Study Quantum Information (Physics / Maths)

New Approach to Information Transfer Reaches Quantum Speed Limit (Quantum)

Even though quantum computers are a young technology and aren’t yet ready for routine practical use, researchers have already been investigating the theoretical constraints that will bound quantum technologies. One of the things researchers have discovered is that there are limits to how quickly quantum information can race across any quantum device. These speed limits are called … Continue reading New Approach to Information Transfer Reaches Quantum Speed Limit (Quantum)

NIST’s Quantum Crystal Could Be a New Dark Matter Sensor (Physics)

Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have linked together, or “entangled,” the mechanical motion and electronic properties of a tiny blue crystal, giving it a quantum edge in measuring electric fields with record sensitivity that may enhance understanding of the universe. The quantum sensor consists of 150 beryllium ions (electrically charged … Continue reading NIST’s Quantum Crystal Could Be a New Dark Matter Sensor (Physics)

Why Strong Interaction at Large Distances And Weaker At Short? (Particle Physics / Quantum)

Recently, Subhash Kak proposed that space is e-dimensional, rather than the commonly supposed 3-dimensions, where, e is Eulers number that is about 2.71828, and he used this to provide a resolution to the problem of Hubble tension, which is the disagreement between values of the rate at which the universe is expanding obtained using two … Continue reading Why Strong Interaction at Large Distances And Weaker At Short?

New Viable Ways Of Storing Information For Quantum Technologies? (Quantum)

Quantum information could be the source of the next technological revolution. By analogy with the bit in classical computing, the qubit is the basic element of quantum computing. But demonstrating the existence of this information storage unit and using it is still complex and therefore limited. In a study published on August 3, 2021 in Physical Review X , an … Continue reading New Viable Ways Of Storing Information For Quantum Technologies?

Physicists Show That a Quantum Particle Made of Light and Matter Can Be Dragged by a Current of Electrons (Physics)

A pair of studies in Nature show that a quasiparticle, known as a plasmon polariton, can be pulled with and against a flow of electrons, a finding that could lead to more efficient ways of manipulating light at the nanoscale. Light was thought to move at a fixed rate until 1851, when a French physicist—the … Continue reading Physicists Show That a Quantum Particle Made of Light and Matter Can Be Dragged by a Current of Electrons (Physics)
