The Largest Quantum Simulator With 53 Qubits

largest quantum simulator

Physicists have built a 53-interacting quantum magnets, making quadrillion magnet configuration possible. It’s a restricted type quantum computer using atomic qubits to mimic complicated quantum matter. They measured each qubit with an efficiency of about 99 percent. Physicists at the University of Maryland and the National Institute of Standards and Technology have used 53 interacting ...

Excitonium: A New Form Of Matter That Exhibits Macroscopic Quantum Phenomena

Excitonium

Physicists discover a new form of matter called Excitonium, which was theorized 50 years ago. It’s made of excitons, particles formed in a strange quantum mechanical pairing. Momentum-resolved Electron Energy-Loss Spectroscopy (M-EELS) is used to discover it.  Physicists at University of California, Berkeley and University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign scrutinized non-doped crystals of the transition metal ...

What Would Happen If Earth Loses The Moon Sooner?

Earth Loses The Moon

According to the current planetary theory, our moon was created around 4.5 billion years ago after a massive collision between the Earth and a slightly less massive Mars like body. That impact caused a chunk of debris to detach from the new born Earth and amalgamate to form the moon. Right after its formation, the total ...
