VADUZ, Liechtenstein and MUNICH, July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The QUANT e-Sportlimousine with nanoFLOWCELL(R) drivetrain concept has been approved by TÜV Süd in Munich
Researchers show momentum and position of quantum system can be determined using technique from signal processing
International Group of Scientists Provides First Rigorous Formulation Supporting Heisenberg's Famous 1927 Uncertainty Principle WASHINGTON, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --
Until recently measuring a 27-dimensional quantum state would have been a time-consuming, multistage process using a technique called quantum tomography, which is similar to creating a 3D image from many 2D ones.
Despite recent claims challenging Heisenberg's nearly century-old uncertainty principle, an international team of researchers has provided a formal proof of the theory.
Researchers at the University of Rochester and the University of Ottawa have applied a recently developed technique to directly measure for the first time the polarization states of light.
Since 1927, when Werner Heisenberg formulated the uncertainty principle, it has stood as one of the cornerstones of quantum mechanics. It has also driven quantum physicists crazy for nearly a century.
For scientists working in quantum physics, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle says that measurements of properties such as the momentum of an object and its exact position cannot be simultaneously specified with arbitrary accuracy.
Heisenberg's Uncertainty principle is arguably one of the most famous foundations of quantum physics.
