The Standard Model is one of the most well-tested theories in particle physics. But scientists are searching for new physics beyond it.
In particle physics, “annihilation” is a transformation.
National Medal of Science Recipient Sylvester James “Jim” Gates, Jr. has published multiple papers on theoretical physics with undergraduate and high school students.
Engineers, physicists, computer scientists and more are needed for the second quantum revolution.
Black scientists have played important roles in the history of quantum physics. In this growing area of specialization, there’s an opportunity to continue that legacy.
Physicist Elmer Imes’ careful work to capture the spectra of molecules made clear the worth of the theory of quantum mechanics.
As we step into the quantum age, here are four things to know about quantum networks.
A technique from the newest generation of quantum sensors is helping scientists to use the limitations of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle to their advantage.
Quantum computers could enable physicists to tackle questions even the most powerful computers cannot handle.
Scientists are exploring a variety of ways to make quantum bits. We may not need to settle on a single one.
Quantum information breaks the rules of classical information in a way that could allow us to answer questions that a classical computer cannot.
Quantum computers go beyond the binary.
Inventions like the transistor and laser changed the world. What changes will the second quantum revolution bring?
Uncertainty, entanglement, spooky action: On the quantum scale, the universe doesn’t work the way you might expect.
This month, Symmetry presents a series of articles on the past, present and future of quantum research—and its many connections to particle physics, astrophysics and computing.
Physicists are revisiting what they previously assumed about how dark matter interacts with itself.
