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 […]

Brief history of the development of quantum mechanics

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Karl Patrick S. Casas Any object of higher temperature than its surroundings radiates and loses heat. More radiation is produced if you raise the temperature even higher. Even objects at room temperature glow, but in the form of infrared radiation, which is not detectable by the eye. A black body absorbs all frequencies and emits […]

Radial Wavefunction of a Hydrogen Atom

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

Gibson T. Maglasang and John Paul Aseniero In this article, we outlined the necessary steps in calculating the radial wavefunctions [eq]R_{nl}[/eq] for the Hydrogen atom. Thus, the radial wavefunctions particularly [eq]R_{30 [/eq], [eq]R_{31 [/eq] and [eq]R_{32 [/eq] are easily obtained  without bothering to normalize it. We use the formula below to find the wavefunction, [eq]R_{nl}=\frac{1}{r}\rho^{l+1}e^{-\rho}\nu(\rho),[/eq] […]

For a Deeper Understanding and Appreciation of our Physical World

Friday, November 28th, 2008

In June 2008, for the first time in the southern Philippines the biggest group of more than a dozen and a half graduate students studying quantum mechanics was ever assembled. Never mind that the Philippines was discovered by Magellan in the year 1521. Anyway, quantum mechanics was only formulated in 1926; relatively quite recent. Quantum […]
