Diamonds will shine a light on quantum mystery in new project at the University of Warwick and UCL

A new project at the University of Warwick and UCL aims to answer a fundamental question of quantum physics, by attempting to make a diamond exist in a superposition of two places at once.

Chaotic electrons heed ‘limit’ in strange metals

Electrons in metals try to behave like obedient motorists, but they end up more like bumper cars. They may be reckless drivers, but a new study involving the University of Warwick confirms this chaos has a limit established by the laws of quantum mechanics.

Grasshopper jumping on Bloch sphere finds new quantum insights

New research at the University of Warwick has (pardon the pun) put a new spin on a mathematical analogy involving a jumping grasshopper and its ideal lawn shape. This work could help us understand the spin states of quantum-entangled particles.

Ultrafast quantum simulations: a new twist to an old approach

Billions of tiny interactions occur between thousands of particles in every piece of matter in the blink of an eye. Simulating these interactions in their full dynamics was said to be elusive but has now been made possible by new work of researchers from Oxford and Warwick.

Computer program developed to find ‘leakage’ in quantum computers

A new computer program that spots when information in a quantum computer is escaping to unwanted states will give users of this promising technology the ability to check its reliability without any technical knowledge for the first time.
