Particle wave duality question: 2 different detectors observing different properties?

I hear a lot of people saying an observation of the double slit experiement collapses the wave function and doesn't allow you to view the particle in 2 places at the same time or as both wave and ...

What happens when one of the double slits are closed?

I was reading "50 quantum physics ideas you really need to know" (by Joanne Baker) and came across an ambiguous paragraph. The topic: Wave-particle duality. It describes a photon that passes through ...

The Double Slit Experiment and the changing of electron behaviour

As you will all know, when one tries to detect which slit an electron has gone through with close up observation, it changes from behaving like a wave and producing an interference pattern to behaving ...

Quantum Mechanics [closed]

Quantum Mechanics. Could anyone help me to understand the concept involved? Double slit experiment can be easily understood by Wave nature of light, but while explaining it with photons, it required ...

Is it the act of measuring a quantum particle that causes it to lose its uncertainty?

I have designed an experiment. Without going into detail it resolves around the double slit quantum eraser experiments. If we can infer the location of a particle without actually measuring it, does ...

Quantum dual-slit experiment via Youtube live streaming (explanation within)?

What will happen with this theoretical setup: A scientist is bored one day and positions his photon detector at the classic dual-slit photon experimental setup. Then he wires the photon detector up to ...

Double-Slit Experiment Timed

I read an article online about someone somewhere timing the length of time it took a particle to travel from the source to the detector but I have lost all my bookmarks. :( Could someone point me to ...

Why the distance between the light source and the slit's screen seems to be a potential box? [closed]

Here is an answer containing an animated picture of how the spherical wavefronts interfere with each other. This picture clearly shows that the fringes on the observers screen are non-stationary. This ...

Quantum entanglement? And quantum double slit

Does quantum entanglement consist only of 2 matter that are connected by each other? And what is the connection between the observer and the matter that is being fired? I'm not a physicist though ...

Are we working in the double slit argumentation with destructive interference arguments?

Stimulating water with two long straight bars one could produce linear waves. Having the right distance between the bars and the correct frequency of the steady system we get in the middle between the ...

Does this experiment on wave-particle duality and complementarity disprove quantum mechanics and prove the EPR viewpoint on it?

I recently read Photons act like they go through two paths, even when we know which they took, at Ars Technica, which reports on the paper Wave-particle dualism and complementarity unraveled ...
