Two atoms entangled using microwaves for the first time

Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have for the first time linked the quantum properties of two separated ions (electrically charged atoms) by manipulating them with microwaves instead of the usual laser beams, suggesting it may be possible to replace an exotic room-sized quantum computing "laser park" with miniaturized, commercial microwave technology … Continue reading Two atoms entangled using microwaves for the first time

Africa launches continent-wide physics society

A new cross-continent society to represent all physicists in Africa was launched at a meeting in the Se negalese capital Dakar last month. The African Physical Society (AfPS) will support the work of existing physical societies in the continent and help those physicists in African countries that do not have their own society. The AfPS, … Continue reading Africa launches continent-wide physics society
