Quantum Mechanics

Jun 26, 2015 sandbox admin

Quantum mechanics is the science of the very small. QM is the body of scientific principles that explain the behaviour of matter and its interactions with energy on the scale of atoms and subatomic particles. Beginning as a set of controversial mathematical explanations of experiments that the math of classical mechanics could not explain, it results in what may appear to be some very strange conclusions about the physical world.

At the atomic and subatomic scale, many of the equations of classical mechanics, cease to be useful. In classical mechanics, objects exist in a specific place at a specific time. However, in quantum mechanics, objects instead exist in a haze of probability.

The Schrödinger equation is the fundamental equation of physics for describing quantum mechanical behavior. It is also often called the Schrödinger wave equation, and is a partial differential equation that describes how the wavefunction of a physical system evolves over time.

Theorist & Experimentalist

Jan 15, 2013 by  Jonathan Gardner

Theoretical physicists construct theories of nature. For a theory to be true it must be both consistent with itself and consistent with nature. The first aspect can be verified with mathematics, the second with experiment. Thus physics is based on a checks-and-balance system between these two approaches.  read more...

  • Theoretical Physicists
  • Experimental Physicists
  • It takes both, Theorist & Experimentalist

One is pretty much pointless without the other as it turns out or is this by design... of course it is!

Quantum Computing

MIT, Google, NSA, IBM, Microsoft Among Many Others

Quantum computers could one day replace silicon chips, just like the transistor once replaced the vacuum tube. But for now, progress in quantum computing depends mostly on the design and build of a reliable version of the basic building block of a quantum computer, a quantum bit or qubit, which uses quantum effects to encode data. Many have built them but, no one yet can control the physics well enough for the qubits to work as a classical computer works now. Progress is being made on reliable qubit production and the race is on because when we reliably tap the bizarre properties of subatomic particles, the end result will advance our computing potential to an unimaginable level.
