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 […]
Professor Geoff Pryde from Griffith's Centre for Quantum Dynamics is the winner of the 2014 Pawsey Medal.
New images have been captured by researchers at Griffith University of light bending around a single atom. The research was carried out at Griffith’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics, using a laser beam directed at a single charged Ytterbium atom suspended in a vacuum. The ion was fixed in position by a high voltage electrical field. […]
