Novel Molecule Shows Intriguing Quantum Behavior

Reporting in Nature Physics, Purdue University researchers say they have created a hybrid molecule whose associated quantum state can be intentionally manipulated with an externally applied electrical field – a required step in the construction of a quantum computer. “If you want to build a quantum computer you have to be able to control the […]

Atoms Coaxed Into Quantum “Cat” State

In a demonstration of just how weird the quantum world is, scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have manipulated six atoms into spinning together in two opposite directions at the same time. This so-called Schrödinger “cat” state was achieved by entangling six beryllium ions (charged atoms) so that their nuclei were […]
