Australia’s fastest camera has revealed the time it takes for molecules to break apart. The experimental research, conducted by Griffith University’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics, aims to help in the design of new molecules for materials science or drug discovery. The Centre is the only place in the country to have the machine in its […]

Quantum RAM: modelling the big questions with the very small

Centre for Quantum Dynamics
Published
When it comes to studying transportation systems, stock markets and the weather, quantum mechanics is probably the last thing to come to mind. However, scientists at Australia’s Griffith University and Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University have just performed a ‘proof of principle’ experiment showing that when it comes to simulating such complex processes in the macroscopic […]

How we escaped from the Big Bang

Centre for Quantum Dynamics
Published
A Griffith University physicist is challenging the conventional view of space and time to show how the world advances through time. Associate Professor Dr Joan Vaccaro, of Griffith’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics, has solved an anomaly of conventional physics and shown that a mysterious effect called ‘T violation’ could be the origin of time evolution and conservation […]
