Scientists from Griffith University have overcome a major challenge in applying a strange quantum effect to real applications.
Griffith University physicist Associate Professor Joan Vaccaro is challenging long-held presumptions about the connection between time and space
The following article by Professor Howard Wiseman, Director of Griffith University’s Centre for Quantum Mechanics, first appeared in The Conversation Only last year the world of physics celebrated the 50th anniversary of Bell’s theorem, a mathematical proof that certain predictions of quantum mechanics are incompatible with local causality. Local causality is a very natural scientific […]
by Geoff Pryde, Griffith University As hackers get more sophisticated in their cyber crime efforts, we need to look to new technology to make our systems more secure, and potentially unhackable. For some types of hacking, we already know the ultimate answer: quantum physics provides a way to share information with absolute security, guaranteed by the […]
From chemistry to quantum physics to science fiction, a radical theory developed at Griffith University is taking quantum science into new and exciting territory
Mind-numbing to some, mind-blowing to others, quantum theory is needed to explain how the universe works at the scale of atoms and smaller. Delivered at these scales, however, new technologies such as teleportation and ultrafast computing have a major hurdle to overcome: the infamous “quantum leap”. In fact, scientists say that just looking at a […]
Michael Hall, a research fellow in the Centre for Quantum Dynamics (CQD), was one of the 143 physicists named by the American Physical Society this year as an Outstanding Referee, out of a pool of about 60 000 currently active referees worldwide. He joins CQD members Howard Wiseman and David Pegg, who were similarly recognised […]
