Ars Technica: A “no math” (but seven-part) guide to modern quantum mechanics

Ars Technica: A “no math” (but seven-part) guide to modern quantum mechanics. “My goal in this seven(!)-part series is to introduce the strangely beautiful effects of quantum mechanics and explain how they’ve come to influence our everyday world. Each edition will include a guided hike into the quantum mechanical woods where we’ll admire a new—and often surprising—effect. Once back at the visitor’s center, we’ll talk about how that effect is used in technology and where to look for it.”

Newswise: Dawn of the Quantum Internet, Secure Quantum Cryptography, and Harnessing Entanglement

Newswise: Dawn of the Quantum Internet, Secure Quantum Cryptography, and Harnessing Entanglement. “Quantum technologies harness the unusual properties of the atomic and subatomic world, where the rules of classical physics do not apply. Properties like entanglement – what Einstein called “spooky action at a distance” – and superposition – where a single particle can exist in multiple states at once – provide remarkable opportunities to push current communications, cryptography, and computing technologies beyond their current limitations. But, what are the latest innovations in quantum research and where are new discoveries taking us?”

Science Daily: New data mining resource for organic materials available

Science Daily: New data mining resource for organic materials available. “Published by the Condensed Matter research group at the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics (NORDITA) at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden, the Organic Materials Database is intended as a data mining resource for research into the electric and magnetic properties of crystals, which are primarily defined by their electronic band structure — an energy spectrum of electrons motion which stem from their quantum-mechanical properties.”
