Ann Arbor teachers find viewers around the world with colorful physics videos

Thumbnail image

For Jonathan Thomas-Palmer, a community high school physics teacher and YouTube educator, it’s not uncommon to suddenly come across someone who considers him a friend, even though he’s never met him. .. “It’s often a strange moment to find out that a person has spent a lot of time with me, something I’ve never seen … Read more

Deciding to read this article is not the result of gravity shattering your quantum spirit

A few years ago, just below the Apennines in Italy, a team of physicists searched for a flash that might suggest that human consciousness is a product of gravity. The fact that they came out empty-handed does not mean that we are all free-willed flesh computers. However, it makes it much more difficult to find … Read more

Mysterious quantum scenarios appear to violate the laws of physics

The energy of a wave is proportional to its frequency. This means that if the wavefunction is a combination of multiple sine waves, the particles are in an “superposition” of energy. When measuring that energy, the wavefunction mysteriously appears to “collapse” into one of the superposition energies. Popescu, Aharonov, and Rohrlich used thought experiments to … Read more

Amsterdam physicists build atomic lasers that can stay forever

Newswise — It’s hard to imagine our daily life without a laser. Lasers are used in printers, CD players, pointers, measuring instruments, etc. What makes the laser special is the use of coherent waves of light. All light in the laser oscillates in perfect synchronization. Quantum mechanics, on the other hand, tells us that particles … Read more
