Graduated physics major and math minor from Drexel University. I want to study entanglement and how to use it to do quantum teleportation on a larger scale.

comment Identical fermions in the same quantum state
Okay, say I have two ions then. Can their remaining electrons be in the same orbital, same energy state, and same spin state? Can this happen if the two ions are separated by a large distance?

comment Identical fermions in the same quantum state
I did not think of the hydrogen as a boson! I guess my question would be if I picked an element that is a fermion, say Lithium atoms?

comment Experimental perspective in understanding the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle
When you say, "so the probability distributions hold for a single measurement too." Do you mean, if we had calculated the probability distribution through solving the wavefunction with the appropriate potential, then a single measurement would be equivalent to a random pick from that calculated distribution?

comment Quantum Teleportation Fidelity
Okay, if I understand you now, you've shown an example where the two particles in the example are different, so only information is exchanged, and no physical state is transferred. It illuminates how it doesn't matter at all about physical states, all the matters here is the information transfer. I am very interested in this field of research and I am looking to apply to IQC for an internship and possibly for grad school. Could I get your email? I wish to discuss with you more about quantum information.

comment Quantum Teleportation Fidelity
I think I understand better now. I am fixated on the physical system itself and not the information it represents. We can still have imperfect physical state transfers, yet retain the information aspect. Therefore, it is still useful? Since the physical system is not perfectly transferred from Alice to Bob, then it would mean that the system that's "teleported" isn't really the same physical state, but a physical state that retains the important information you'd wish to transfer in Bob's hands.

comment Does Kepler's law only apply to planets?
Since all you need is an inverse square central attractive potential between two bodies, then it applies to any two oppositely charged particles as well, because the Coulomb Force is essentially the same form as the Gravitational Force.

comment Why does the shadow of the hairs on my leg seemingly only appear when the leg is moving slowly?
What your referring to probably has to do with reference frames. Although you are not moving, the tree is moving due to the wind being blown. Therefore, there are moments when sunlight directly hits you, and moments when it's indirect, because the tree is blocking the sunlight. When you don't have a bright enough light, you won't be able to make out small thin shadows. Kinds like when your sitting inside a train adjacent to another train. When your train moves vs. the other train makes it look as though the scenario is the same. Something is moving relative to another, in your case, the tree
