Griffith University is among a select of group universities chosen to conduct joint research with US universities on priority defence projects.
When it comes to studying transportation systems, stock markets and the weather, quantum mechanics is probably the last thing to come to mind. However, scientists at Australia’s Griffith University and Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University have just performed a ‘proof of principle’ experiment showing that when it comes to simulating such complex processes in the macroscopic […]
The director of Griffith’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics has been elected in the newest class of Optical Society (OSA) Fellows. Professor Howard Wiseman is among 96 OSA members, representing 19 different countries, who have been been elected this year among 177 nominations reviewed. Fellows are selected based on several factors, including specific scientific, engineering, and technological contributions, a record […]
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 […]
Griffith University and the University of Tokyo have used homodyne measurements to show what Albert Einstein did not believe to be real: the non-local collapse of a particle's wave function
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 […]
