Explaining this quantum mechanical phenomenon in under a minute.

And it looks like a multi-dimensional palace of light.

Physicists have characterized a multi-dimensional polyhedron — called the amplituhedron — that could provide a quantum theory of gravity.

The “Quantum Internet” Is Just a Decade Away. Here’s What You Need to Know.

As China moves closer to building a working quantum communications network, the possibility of a quantum internet becomes more and more real.

Watch: Why Can’t You Use Quantum Mechanics To Communicate Faster Than Light?

Einstein's relativity tells us it would be a disaster if we could.

Physicists Have Made Exotic Quantum States From Light

Physicist have learned how to use light to create flowing quantum states, which puts us one step closer to living in a world with quantum computers.

Quantum Weirdness Has Been Tested Beyond The Particle Scale For The First Time

A minor tweak to a definitive experiment in quantum physics brings significant results.

Surprise Find Flips a Decade of Research Into an Exotic Quantum Particle

The findings of this study have wide reaching implications. They will help scientists understand why normal materials have a diverse range of properties that could not have arisen if their quantum behaviour was the same. And understanding the three-body Efimov system puts scientists in the 'sweet spot' of where universal material behaviour disappears.
