Paths on the Lattice
23 Oct 2014 - 10:40
Chandrashekar used lattices such as these to move a particle step by step. Some lattices contained missing connections, creating gaps where the particle cannot travel.

Quantum Coherence in a Bose-Einstein Condensate
22 Jan 2013 - 17:01
Many-particle quantum coherence is a phenomenon where two or more particles take on the form of a wave and combine to act as one large wave. A Bose–Einstein condensate (BEC) consists of a gas cooled...

The Superposition of an Atom
22 Jan 2013 - 16:50
Under quantum conditions a single atom can be in two places at once, i.e. in superposition with itself. These images show the superposition of an atom from two different perspectives. The red smears...

The Double-Slit Experiment
22 Jan 2013 - 16:46
By shooting an electron at a wall with two slits positioned in front of a screen, physicists found that matter can exhibit the characteristics of a wave in one case and a particle in another. If the...
