It is considered that a quantum mechanics parameter is undefined until it is measured.But what happens if two independent observers measure the same quantum parameter? Do they get the same value or ...
In the double slit experiment, what happens when there is more than one observer trying to see which slit the same electron goes through?
From all the demonstrations Iv been able to find of Heisenberg's double slit experiment, whenever an observer tries to "see" which slit an electron passes through it collapses the wave function. My ...
I am a layman and was wondering, the quantum observer effect. The regular notion to laymen seems to be literally "if you look at it", but as I am coming to understand the world I live in better I feel ...
Ok so if we setup a camera before the slit we will find a single photon and will follow through accordingly, likewise by having a camera setup after the slit, we can retroactivly collapse the wave ...
Is the uncertainty principle just saying something about what an observer can know or is it a fundamental property of nature?
I ask this question because I have read two different quotes on the uncertainty principle that don't seem to match very well. There are similar questions around here but I would like an explanation ...
Isn't the uncertainty principle just non-fundamental limitations in our current technology that could be removed in a more advanced civilization?
From what I understand, the uncertainty principle states that there is a fundamental natural limit to how accurately we can measure velocity and momentum at the same time. It's not a limit on ...
I understand that in the single-electron-at-a-time double slit experiment, if a detector is placed before the slit, the interference pattern vanishes. Suppose I left the detector on, but put a bag ...
