  • The legacy of a genius locked in a sick body

    Enrique Sacristán | 15 March 2018 15:30

    He never won a Nobel prize and lost several scientific wagers, but Stephen Hawking's contributions to the field of cosmology are undoubted. First-line physicists tell Sinc the ideas of the popular scientist that have helped us to better understand our universe, from black holes that emit radiation and vanish to quantum seeds that create galaxies or space-time curvatures that lead us to the Big...

  • Bohr’s quantum theory revised

    SINC | 31 January 2017 08:00

    Bohr’s atomic model was utterly revolutionary when it was presented in 1913 but, although it is still taught in schools, it became obsolete decades ago. However, its creator also developed a much wider-ranging and less known quantum theory, the principles of which changed over time. Researchers at the University of Barcelona have now analysed the development in the Danish physicist’s thought –...

  • Pressing the accelerator on quantum robotics

    SINC | 02 October 2014 09:00

    Quantum computing will allow for the creation of powerful computers, but also much smarter and more creative robots than conventional ones. This was the conclusion arrived at by researchers from the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) and Austria, who have confirmed that quantum tools help robots learn and respond much faster to the stimuli around them.
