BELL’S INEQUALITY: A Distinction between Local Reality and Quantum Mechanics Theory

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Marichu M. Tompong-Miscala Local realism is the idea that an object has definite properties or assumes a definite state without being affected by the act of measurement [1]. This belief is especially contrary to the probabilistic ( not deterministic ) characteristic of quantum mechanics. In 1965, John S. Bell had proposed a mathematical proof or […]

A “Schrodinger Cat” Superposition

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Sandra L. Manulat “Schrodinger’s cat paradox is a classical illustration of the conflict between the existence of quantum superpositions and our real-world experience of observation and measurement”[1]. The Principle of Superposition of States in quantum mechanics has become strikingly successful at describing physical phenomena at the atomic scale.  Quantum superposition requires us to assume that […]

A Summary of Decoherence and the Transition from Quantum to Classical by Wojciech H. Zurek

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Normie Jean B. Sajor Quantum mechanics is one of the most functional theories in the world of physics.  It describes the workings of particles, atoms, and molecules with extraordinary accuracy and also explains the action of lasers and transistors. Yet, the debate about the relation of quantum mechanics to the familiar physical world continues. For […]

Advances in Quantum Computing

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Catherine Therese J. Quiñones For many years, computers have doubled in power every year or so, as what Moore’s law predicts. This means that transistors are getting smaller and smaller and will eventually approach the size of an atom. However, in the atomic regime, the physics is completely different from what is observed in the […]

Quantum Entanglement towards scalable Quantum Computing

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Gibson T. Maglasang Quantum Physics, quantum information science and quantum computing are among the growing field of science and crowning intellectual achievements over the past century. Basically, it involves the storage, manipulation, teleportation and communication of information in quantum systems where great enhancements are possible due to entanglement. In this article, entanglement of a two […]
