Quantum entanglement
Quantum entanglement is a physical phenomenon that occurs when pairs or groups of particles are generated or interact in ways such that the quantum state of each particle cannot be described independe...

Quantum Physics: What Is Really Real?
Ever since they invented quantum theory in the early 1900s, explains Maroney, who is himself a physicist at the University of Oxford, UK, they have been talking about how strange it is — how it allows...
A New ‘Einstein’ Equation Suggests Wormholes Hold Key To Quantum Gravity
A new Einsteinian equation, ER=EPR, may be the clue physicists need to merge quantum mechanics with general relativity.
Schrödinger’s cat just got even weirder (and even more confusing)
The researchers hope their findings will help make quantum computers a reality.
Quantum Computing Is About To Overturn Cybersecurity’s Balance Of Power
Quantum mechanics is now being used to construct a new generation of computers that can solve the most complex scientific problems—and unlock every digital vault in the world. These will perform in s...
A Different Picture Of Quantum Surrealism
With its ideas of particles zipping in and out of existence, quantum mechanics is probably the kookiest-sounding theory in science. And our understanding of it is little helped by the mysterious “pro...
Quantum Teleportation? Producing Spin-Entangled Electrons
Researchers have successfully produced pairs of spin-entangled electrons and demonstrated that they remain entangled even when they are separated from one another on a chip. This research could contri...
Albert Einstein Wouldn’t Like It: New Test Proves Universe Is ‘Spooky’
The universe really is weird, which is bad news both for Albert Einstein and for would-be hackers hoping to break into quantum encryption systems. Eighty years after the physicist dismissed as “spooky...
New Method Of Quantum Entanglement Vastly Increases How Much Information Can Be Carried In A Photon
A team of researchers led by UCLA electrical engineers has demonstrated a new way to harness light particles, or photons, that are connected to each other and act in unison no matter how far apart the...
How Quantum Pairs Stitch Space-Time
Brian Swingle was a graduate student studying the physics of matter at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology when he decided to take a few classes in string theory to round out his education — “be...
The Race To Prove 'Spooky' Quantum Connection May Have a Winner
Particles don’t obey the same rules as people. Poke a particle, and another one far away can instantly respond the touch -- without any messages passing through the space between, as if the two partic...
Three 'Twisted' Photons In 3 Dimensions
Researchers at the Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information, the University of Vienna, and the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona have achieved a new milestone in quantum physics: they were ...
China Launches The First Quantum Communications Satellite – And What Is That, Exactly?
Congratulations are in order for China: by launching the world's first quantum communications satellite, the country has achieved an interesting — if..
FIRST OBJECT TELEPORTED FROM EARTH TO ORBIT!
✔Researchers in China have teleported a photon from the ground to a satellite orbiting more than 500 kilometers above.
Quantum teleportation
Quantum teleportation is a process by which quantum information (e.g. the exact state of an atom or photon) can be transmitted (exactly, in principle) from one location to another, with the help of cl...

Quantum pseudo-telepathy
Quantum pseudo-telepathy is a phenomenon in quantum game theory resulting in anomalously high success rates in coordination games between separated players. These high success rates would require co...

EPR paradox
The EPR paradox yields a dichotomy that physical reality as described by quantum mechanics is incomplete.It is an early and influential critique levelled against the Copenhagen interpretation of quant...

Bell's theorem
Bell's theorem is a ‘no-go theorem’ that draws an important distinction between quantum mechanics (QM) and the world as described by classical mechanics. In its simplest form, Bell's theorem states:Co...

Retrocausality
Retrocausality (also called retro-causation, retro-chronal causation, backward causation, and similar terms) is any of several hypothetical phenomena or processes that reverse causality, allowing an e...
Nonlocality
Nonlocality may refer to:
No-communication theorem
In physics, the no-communication theorem is a no-go theorem from quantum information theory which states that, during measurement of an entangled quantum state, it is not possible for one observer, by...
Quantum teleportation - Video
This is a short animation that attempts to make sense of quantum mechanics and the method of quantum teleportation.
Quantum Entanglement May Link Wormholes In Universe, Physicists Say
Wormholes — shortcuts that in theory can connect distant points in the universe — might be linked with the spooky phenomenon of quantum entanglement, where the behavior of particles can be connected...
Tachyon
A tachyon /ˈtæki.ɒn/ or tachyonic particle is a hypothetical particle that always moves faster than light. The word comes from the Greek: ταχύ or tachy /ˈtɑːxi/, meaning "swift, quick, fast, rapi...

Principle of locality
In physics, the principle of locality states that an object is only directly influenced by its immediate surroundings. A physical theory is said to be a local theory if it is consistent with the prin...
