Doing more with less: New technique efficiently finds quantum wave functions

Doing more with less: New technique efficiently finds quantum wave functions

August 28, 2014

University researchers have introduced a new method, called compressive direct measurement, that allowed the team to reconstruct a quantum state at 90 percent fidelity using only a quarter of the measurements required by previous methods.

Entangled photons make a picture from a paradox

Entangled photons make a picture from a paradox

August 27, 2014

Physicists have devised a way to take pictures using light that has not interacted with the object being photographed. This form of imaging uses pairs of photons, twins that are ‘entangled’ in such a way that the quantum state of one is inextricably linked to the other.

Duality principle is ‘safe and sound’

Duality principle is ‘safe and sound’

August 26, 2014

Decades of experiments have verified the quirky laws of quantum theory again and again. So when scientists in Germany announced in 2012 an apparent violation of a fundamental law of quantum mechanics, a physicist at the University of Rochester was determined to find an explanation.

Duality principle is “safe and sound”: Researchers clear up apparent violation of quantum mechanics’ wave-particle duality

August 25, 2014

When scientists in Germany announced in 2012 an apparent violation of a fundamental law of quantum mechanics, The results were both “strange” and “incredible.” It took Robert Boyd and his colleagues nearly a year and a half to figure out what was going on.

Robert Clark stresses need for federal research support at National Press Club

July 10, 2014

Universities can help drive regional economic development and strengthen American competitiveness — but only if the federal government continues to partner with institutions and commits to provide the sustained research funding that is required to, first, discover a good idea, then “translate” it into products and services that benefit society.

Better tissue healing with disappearing hydrogels

Better tissue healing with disappearing hydrogels

June 6, 2014

When stem cells are used to regenerate bone tissue, many wind up migrating away from the repair site, which disrupts the healing process. A new technique keeps the stem cells in place, resulting in faster and better tissue regeneration.
