Scientists find a way to connect quantum and classical physics

December 19, 2018, Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology Hybrid quantum-classical spin system. Credit: Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology Physicists from Skoltech have invented a new method for calculating the dynamics of large quantum systems. Underpinned by a combination of quantum and classical modeling, the method has been successfully applied to nuclear magnetic resonance in […]

What are some misconceptions about quantum physics?

Here are some I’ve heard or read, time and time again : Quantum physics is the physics of microscopic scale.This is true, but misleading. Quantum physics work at all scales, but we see quantum effects occur naturally when the action is low.In fact, nanophysics and meta-materials, and quantum information all involve endeavours to extend quantum properties […]
