Researchers have discovered some new aspects of the life and death of the black holes.

Physical Review Letters published this research.

“Eighty years after Einstein, quantum physics is still so mysterious that there are many different interpretations of its physical meaning. All the interpretations agree on what is going to be observed in any given experiment, but they each tell different stories of how these observations come about,” Christoph Simon with the Department of Physics and Astronomy in the Faculty of Science at the University of Calgary, said in a statement.

Mathematical findings took us closer to the Teleportation phenomenon

(Credit: © vlights / Fotolia)Mathematical finding helped scientists to get closer to the practical teleportation i.e. moving somewhere without traveling.

This research has been published in the journal Physical Review Letters.

For more than a decade, researchers including theoretical physicists are of the opinion that there is a strong connection between the particles and for the past decade, scientists found that those strong connections as established in the quantum law of ‘entanglement’ could help us in the teleportation process.

Entanglement refers to the phenomenon of harmonization of two particles such as protons or electrons at a distance. Einstein famously spoke about the quantum entanglement as “spooky action at a distance.”

Researchers are of the opinion that this synchronization of two particles can be utilized giving double results at the same time i.e. quantum bits of information – qubits – can be utilized and this utilization can also help us in teleportation phenomenon.

“There is a close connection between teleportation and quantum computers, which are devices which exploit quantum mechanics to perform computations which would not be feasible on a classical computer,” said Sergii Strelchuck from Cambridge’s Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, who led the research with colleagues Jonathan Oppenheim of Cambridge and UCL and Michal Horodecki of the University of Gdansk.

Corrected prediction of quantum theory through an experiment in University of Florida; Research

Quantum ImageResearchers have rewritten one of the rules of quantum physics for detecting the conditions under which the transition would happen between the two quantum states.

This research has been done by utilizing the University of Florida (UF) Laboratory and published online in the journal Nature.

“We are in the age of quantum mechanics,” said Neil Sullivan, a UF physics professor and director of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory High B/T Facility on the UF campus. Products of the quantum mechanics such as the quantum magnets could help in achieving the unbelievable phenomena of supercomputation, alternative energy and levitating trains, i.e. next generation of fast transportations, Sullivan said.
