The electron remains the most perfect sphere in the Universe

The examination of this elementary particle with unprecedented precision supports, once again, the standard model of physics. Researchers at Imperial College London concluded in 2011 that the electron is the most perfect sphere in the Universe. As announced, what separates this elementary particle from the absolute roundness is less than 0.000000000000000000000000001 cm, something insignificant. Now,…… Continue reading The electron remains the most perfect sphere in the Universe

The ytterbium will allow the construction of a global quantum network

Swiss scientists find the key to quantum memory: they have discovered that the ytterbium, a chemical element of the periodic table, subjected to precise magnetic fields, is able to isolate itself from the environment and operate at high frequencies, thus allowing it to store and replicate the quantum signal quickly and build a global quantum…… Continue reading The ytterbium will allow the construction of a global quantum network

They get for the first time the quantum control of a molecule

German and American researchers have managed to control the quantum states of molecules, opening the door to a new technology that will help the processing of quantum information and increase the control of chemical reactions. They have achieved this by joining a molecule to an atom, which they used to manipulate the molecule. A group…… Continue reading They get for the first time the quantum control of a molecule

Quantum physics will revolutionize blockchain technology

Quantum entanglement can give blockchain technology a security equivalent to that of quantum cryptography, according to research. It will allow to store the information of the network in the past, by means of photons that do not exist in the present, reason why it would work like a machine of the time. The blockchain or…… Continue reading Quantum physics will revolutionize blockchain technology

The unknown conductive properties of bismuth

Until now it was thought that the electronic structure of bismuth was trivial, but researchers from the University of the Basque Country and other international centers have proven that this metal is a topological insulator. These materials have very special conductive properties, with potential application in electronic devices and quantum computing. A study framed within…… Continue reading The unknown conductive properties of bismuth
