  1. Characterizing The ‘Arrow Of Time’ In Open Quantum Systems
    7/9/2019

    Even in the strange world of open quantum systems, the arrow of time points steadily forward — most of the time. New experiments conducted at Washington University in St. Louis compare the forward and reverse trajectories of superconducting circuits called qubits, and find that they follow the second law of thermodynamics. The research is published July 9 in the journal Physical Review Letters.
