Latest Interpretation of quantum mechanics Stories
With simple arguments, researchers show that nature is complicated!
Researchers have discovered a new way in which computers based on quantum physics could beat the performance of classical computers.
The unification of quantum mechanics and Einstein's general relativity is one of the most exciting and still open questions in modern physics.
Just as a camera flash illuminates unseen objects hidden in darkness, a sequence of laser pulses can be used to study the elusive quantum behavior of a large "macroscopic" object.
Quantum mechanics is famous for saying that a tree falling in a forest when there's no one there doesn't make a sound.
A quantum particle is hard to grasp, because one cannot determine all its properties precisely at the same time.
The weird world of quantum mechanics describes the strange, often contradictory, behaviour of small inanimate objects such as atoms.
University of Toronto quantum physicists Jeff Lundeen and Aephraim Steinberg have shown that Hardy's paradox, a proposal that has confounded physicists for over a decade, can be confirmed and ultimately resolved, a task which had seemingly been impossible to perform.
The ability to exploit the extraordinary properties of quantum mechanics in novel applications, such as a new generation of super-fast computers, has come closer following recent progress with some of the remaining underlying mathematical problems.
When a tiny, quantum-scale, hypothetical balloon is popped in a vacuum, do the particles inside spread out all over the place as predicted by classical mechanics?
Multiverse -- The term Multiverse was invented in December 1960, by Andy Nimmo, then vice chairman of the British Interplanetary Society, Scottish Branch, for a talk on the Everett many-worlds interpretation of quantum physics which had been published in 1957, to the branch. This was given in February 1961, and the word with its original definition, "an apparent universe, a multiplicity of which, go to make up the whole universe" was then first used. This was because the then dictionary...
