A new thought experiment makes it clearer than ever that photons aren’t simply particles or waves.

65.

Although the quantum Rabi model is the simplest model describing the coupling of quantum light and matter, only now has an analytical solution been found.

66.

In the Aharonov-Bohm effect, proposed in 1959, quantum particles are affected in measurable ways by the classical electromagnetic potential, previously regarded as a purely mathematical construct. The electromagnetic field is too far from the particles to have any direct influence.

Synopsis

A newly found fundamental limitation puts bounds on the accuracy of measurements in quantum-mechanical systems.

69.

Two objects made of the exotic materials known as topological insulators could repel one another through the quantum-mechanical forces that cause most other solids to attract, theorists predict.
