The return of the spin echo

A research team from Garching and Vienna discovered a remarkable echo effect - it offers exciting new possibilities for working with quantum informationCredit: C. Hohmann /MCQST Small particles can have an angular momentum that points

Magnetic field with the edge!

Credit: Atul Kumar A team of Indian and Japanese physicists have overturned the six-decade old notion that the giant magnetic field in a high intensity laser produced plasma evolves from the small, nanometre scale in the bulk plasma . They…

Quantum shake

Physicists use classical concepts to decipher strange quantum behaviors in an ultracold gas There they were, in all their weird quantum glory: ultracold lithium atoms in the optical trap operated by UC Santa Barbara undergraduate student…
