A group of scientists from the Chinese University of Science and Technology, led by Xiao-Hui Bao, quantum teleportation could provide information on the distance of 150 meters. For this purpose two groups of rubidium atoms. These groups, which are quantum objects, entangled with the photons of laser light. After tangling scientists alter the quantum state of one of the groups of atoms, and this change is immediately manifested itself in the second group of atoms.
Xiao-Hui Bao and his team are going to increase the time that a group of rubidium atoms can maintain the integrity of the quantum Read more [...]
July 27, 2012. Since 2010 the beaches around the world have been covered by dead marine animals. Birds and fish were dying EN masse, which has never been reported before. These events occur throughout the reservoirs, rivers and oceans.
