Eric M. Alcantara The present state of atomic theory is characterized by the fact that we not only believe that existence of atoms to be proved, but also we even believe that we have an intimate knowledge of the constituents of the individual atoms. It was in the early decades of the 19th century when […]

What quantum computers may tell us about quantum mechanics

Monday, March 15th, 2010

Carlo Paul P. Morente Even if quantum mechanics occupies a unique role in the course of history, its foundations are often questioned due to the difficulty of reconciling it with classical laws of physics. While today’s technology leads to the device being miniature towards atomic scale, quantum effects are beginning to confront this trend such […]

Entanglement, Decoherence and the Quantum/Classical Boundary*

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Christine Marie T. Ceblano Since 1996 to 1998, great advancement has been made in the entangling experiments, like ions in trap and atoms in high Q-cavities which are disparate in techniques and yet similar in a way that they both comprehend a simple situation in which a two-level atom is coupled to a quantized harmonic […]

A Controlled-NOT Quantum Logic Gate

Sunday, March 7th, 2010

by Majvell Kay G. Odarve A quantum computer is device for computation that uses the phenomena of quantum mechanics to perform operations on data. Because of the quantum mechanical phenomena, such as entanglement and superposition of states, quantum computers have great offers in the field of computations and data handling. The distinctive feature of a […]

Reality and Quantum theory

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

Patrick Alvin M. Alcantara Einstein maintained that quantum mechanics entails “spooky actions at a distance” (the interaction of two objects which are separated in space with no known mediator of the interaction); experiments have now shown that what bothered Einstein is not a debatable point but the observed behavior of the real world. He called […]
