Its hard to imagine a photon with a frequency as low as one cycle per second considering green light with a 500nm wavelength has a frequency of about 600 trillion cycles per second. Considering your question from the point of view of a photon traveling at c with a low frequency of 1 cps helps to imagine the process in slow motion. If a photon has an ...


Well I would argue a much simpler and shorter explanation: That the measurement of a photon will collapse the wave function of the photon and therefore the system will no longer be a quantum mechanical one but classical. Before the measurement there will be a error due to the uncertainty principle, see it like the photon wave is hitting the detector but the ...
