Google Quantum AI Reveals Photon Bound States Remain Strong Even Amidst Chaos

Google Quantum AI Reveals Photon Bound States Remain Strong Even Amidst Chaos

A ring of superconducting qubits can host “bound states” of microwave photons, where photons tend to clump together on neighboring qubit sites. Credit: Google Quantum AI Using a quantum processor, the researchers made the microwave photons unusually sticky. After convincing them to clump together in bound states, they discovered that these photon clusters survived in …

How Chaos Theory Mediates Between Quantum Theory and Thermodynamics

One of the particles acts as a thermometer and the whole system is simulated on a computer. Credit: TU Wien A single particle has no temperature. It has a certain energy or a certain speed, but it is not possible to translate this into a temperature. It is only when dealing with random velocity distributions …

Synchronize chaos across a narrow slice of the spectrum

Conceptual overview of the coupling scheme between a chaotic master and slave oscillator via a bandpass filter, and the resulting complex interdependence between their activities. Credit: Chaos, solitons and fractals (2022). DOI: 10.1016/j.chaos.2022.112854 The abstract notion that the whole can be found in every part of something has long fascinated engaged thinkers in all fields …
