Seeing light in a new light: Scientists create never-before-seen form of matter

Sep. 25, 2013 — Harvard and MIT scientists are challenging the conventional wisdom about light, and they didn't need to go to a galaxy far, far away to do it. Working with colleagues at the Harvard-MIT Center for Ultracold Atoms, a group led by Harvard Professor of Physics Mikhail Lukin and MIT Professor of Physics… Continue reading Seeing light in a new light: Scientists create never-before-seen form of matter

Study makes a quantum entanglement leap

A German team takes a crucial step in exploiting a long-distance phenomenon that even Einstein once called 'spooky.' Some scientists have likened it to voodoo, while Albert Einstein called it just plain "spooky." In the bizarre realm of quantum mechanics, entanglement is the phenomenon in which two seemingly distinct particles control each other in ways… Continue reading Study makes a quantum entanglement leap
