Quantum Mechanics: A Ladybird Expert Book by Jim Al-Khalili – digested read

‘Planck’s constant is a tiny number. It is even smaller than 1. Wow!’<p>By the end of the 19th century, many physicists believed there really wasn’t any more to learn about the workings of nature and the properties of matter and radiation. On balance, it might have been easier for everyone if things …

Quantum Physics

We just got better at detecting this quantum phenomenon that Einstein thought was too ‘spooky’ to be real

That's because entanglement, a voodoo-like phenomenon in quantum physics linking particles that once interacted, seems to surpass the speed of light, violating the cosmic speed limit.<p>Because of this, it doesn't fit in with Einstein's theory of relativity, so he concluded that it was too ludicrous …

Bose-Einstein condensates miscibility properties reveal surprises

Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) are macroscopic systems that have quantum behaviour, and are useful for exploring fundamental physics. Now …
