- C is for Computing
- “ The rules of the quantum world mean that we can process information much faster than is possible using the computers we use now ” more from our A-Z of

the quantum world

- Q is for Qubit
- “ One quantum bit of information is known as a qubit (pronounced Q-bit). The ability of quantum particles to exist in many different states at once means a single quantum object can represent multiple qubits at once, opening up the possibility of extremely fast information processing ” more from our A-Z of

the quantum world

- E is for Entanglement
- “ When two quantum objects interact, the information they contain becomes shared. This can result in a kind of link between them, where an action performed on one will affect the outcome of an action performed on the other. This “entanglement” applies even if the two particles are half a universe apart ” more from our A-Z of

the quantum world

- I is for Information
- “ Many researchers working in quantum theory believe that information is the most fundamental building block of reality ” more from our A-Z of

the quantum world

- A is for Alice and Bob
- “ In quantum experiments, these are the names traditionally given to the people transmitting and receiving information. In quantum cryptography, an eavesdropper called Eve tries to intercept the information ” more from our A-Z of

the quantum world

- P is for Planck’s Constant
- “ This is one of the universal constants of nature, and relates the energy of a single quantum of radiation to its frequency. It is central to quantum theory and appears in many important formulae, including the Schrödinger Equation ” more from our A-Z of

the quantum world

- R is for Randomness
- “ Unpredictability lies at the heart of quantum mechanics. It bothered Einstein, but it also bothers the Dalai Lama ” more from our A-Z of

the quantum world

- B is for Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC)
- “ At extremely low temperatures, quantum rules mean that atoms can come together and behave as if they are one giant super-atom ” more from our A-Z of

the quantum world

- O is for Objective reality
- “ Neils Bohr, one of the founding fathers of quantum physics, said there is no such thing as objective reality. All we can talk about, he said, is the results of measurements we make. ” more from our A-Z of

the quantum world

- Z is for Zero-point energy
- “ Even at absolute zero, the lowest temperature possible, nothing has zero energy. In these conditions, particles and fields are in their lowest energy state, with an energy proportional to Planck’s constant ” more from our A-Z of

the quantum world

- S is for Superposition
- “ Quantum objects can exist in two or more states at once: an electron in superposition, for example, can simultaneously move clockwise and anticlockwise around a ring-shaped conductor ” more from our A-Z of

the quantum world

- S is for Schrödinger’s Cat
- “ A hypothetical experiment in which a cat kept in a closed box can be alive and dead at the same time – as long as nobody lifts the lid to take a look ” more from our A-Z of

the quantum world
