Scientists Prove “Light-Beam” Quantum Theory –Paving Way for Super Computers & Teleportation

Quantum_physics_light_beam Scientists have discovered a way to manipulate quantum light, using a technology that could facilitate advanced computers and quantum teleportation. By successfully creating superposed light beams, the researchers were able to produce a state that is both “on” and “off” at the same time.

Light beams that can be simultaneously on and off would be vital for the next-generation super computers. Using this new technology, computers could be much faster than current computers based on bits, which can only be either on or off.

The "God Particle" -Holy Grail of Physics, has it been Found?

Higgs_bison Scientists are racing to discover what is considered the “Holy Grail” of particle physics, the Higgs Boson particle. A myriad of top newspapers have been covering the unveiling of the world's largest particle accelerator, the large hadron collider (LHC) which cost the European Union $8 billion to build. The LHC is widely considered the best shot at finding the elusive particle. To find this very last piece of the field’s theoretical puzzle would mean a Noble Prize, and huge advancements in the field of physics.

However, an unsettling rumor is spreading in the realm of physics. The mysterious particle may have already been found!

Mysteries of the Universe's Hidden Dimensions

Trance_2Einstein's General Theory of Relativity about matter, space, gravity and time seems incompatible with the theory of quantum mechanics, which governs the microworld of quarks and leptons. Physicists have been searching for ways to make a bridge the two worlds. In 1999, Lisa Randall of Harvard and Raman Sundrum of Johns Hopkins University co-authored two of the most important scientific papers on extra spatial dimensions, explaining how our visible world of four dimensions could be embedded in a higher-dimensional universe.

Randall's work has influenced advocates of string theory, and technology may be coming closer to verifying string theory, which she presents in her book, Warped Passages: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Universe's Hidden Dimensions. Proof of an extra dimension could occur when the new Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland begins operations next year, it may have enough energy to produce particles that travel in or through an extra dimension, or even produce microscopic black holes.
