Google has officially claimed that its researchers achieved a breakthrough in the field of ‘Quantum Supremacy’. The term was coined by American theoritical physicist ‘ John Preskill’ to describe a point where quantum computers can perform any task that can’t be performed by the classical computers. The tech giant have claimed that they have developed ..

A time-crystal or a space-crystal is basically an open system which shows time translation symmetry breaking (TTSB). The concept was first proposed by the Nobel laureate Frank Wilczek in 2012. He put forward that a time crystal can spontaneously break the symmetry of time translation. They are related to the concepts of zero-point energy and ..

Quantum communication refers to an almost hackproof communication with use of quantum cryptography. The most common application of quantum cryptography is Quantum Key Distribution (QKD in which the quantum mechanical effects are used to perform cryptographic tasks. Quantum communication boasts ultra-high security communication and uses subatomic particles to securely communicate between two points. In case intruder (hacker) ..

Serge Haroche of France and David Wineland of America together won the 2012 Nobel Prize in Physics for inventing methods to observe the bizarre properties of the quantum particles without disturbing them. This thing was previously thought unattainable. What is their invention? Their inventions are the methods by which quantum particles like atom, electron or ..
