Path Breaking Study Reverses Time in Quantum Computer

Time flies they say and because of that, it could well be an illusion. The concept of time has a varied perception in physics that it has become a constant pain in the neck for scientists’ worldwide. How does one even define time, how does it have a particular direction and can time be reversed. These are the biggest questions that have been a constant bane of research and theories over time itself but now a new study claims to have a better in-depth understanding of time where an experiment by scientists has actually reversed time. Read on go find out how is this possible.

1A scientific breakthrough in quantum computing

The study which is being deemed a scientific breakthrough appears to be a contradiction to the laws of physics and can even alter people’s understanding of this vast universe. The new development is a major advance in the field of quantum mechanics whose concept was used along with electrons to turn back time in an experienced. Consider this an equivalent of a rack of pool balls, first broken by a player and then instantly going back into place. That’s how amazing the experiment is which is why scientists are excited about it.

2The experiment took place in a quantum computer

The experiment was carried out using a quantum computer and anyone watching it would look at the event as if time went backward. The study can be severely implicating for quantum mechanics and quantum computing. The time reversal experiment was achieved on the quantum computer and has also revealed an important fact.

3A complex probability that could be impossible

The experiment has also revealed how complex can be the operation of time reversal to the point of it being improbable and near impossible to happen instantly and spontaneously in a natural environment and circumstances. The researchers who were from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) and helped by colleagues in Switzerland and the US – feel that the technique used for the experiment has great potential for improvement and will be much more reliable and accurate in the future.

4What the present laws of physics state

According to the present laws of physics, it is possible to go backward and forwards in time in certain cases such as in quantum systems and environment, time reversal operations are possible to create. This is what the research team did by take a realistic scenario as a base and crafting a thought experiment.
