Can vibrating membranes reveal fundamental truths? An extension of the adiabatic theorem may lead to improved control of systems.
China has launched the world’s first quantum satellite, which promises to probe new aspects of mysterious quantum communications. But as the technology can potentially create a spy-proof communications network, the entire world is eagerly watching the results.
Quantum technologies could unlock entirely new ways to view the world — but only if scientists can create stable methods of manipulating qubits. Researchers from the Yale Quantum Institute have integrated classical and quantum technologies to create scalable quantum information chips, heralding a paradigm shift for the field.
Sticky materials may already hold our lives together, but a new breakthrough in our understanding of how things stick together could transform our understanding of some biological processes like organ growth and cancer metastasis.
The world of electronics will soon have slower growth because of limitations from materials science. But new research in magnetic metamaterials promises a solution — and it all started with the observation of phase transitions.
Yale associate professor of physics Jack Harris has received a Keck grant to investigate quantum gravity.
