Quantum mechanics (QM), also known as quantum physics or quantum theory, is a branch of physics providing a mathematical description of much of the dual particle-like and wave-like behavior and interactions of energy and matter. It departs from classical mechanics primarily at the atomic and subatomic scales, the so-called quantum realm. In advanced topics of QM, some of these behaviors are macroscopic and only emerge at very low or very high energies or temperatures.

Bringing Quantum Mechanics to Life: From Schrödinger's Cat to Schrödinger's Microbe
01 Nov 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Tongcang Li
In this talk, I will first give a brief introduction to basic concepts in quantum mechanics and the Schrödinger's cat thought experiment. I will then review developments in creating quantum superposition and entangled states and the realization of quantum teleportation. Non-trivial quantum...

Quantum Mechanics for Everyone
03 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Erica W. Carlson
Does an observer determine reality? Can I use quantum mechanics to create my own reality? Quantum mechanics takes us into the wild and wacky world of the really small where particles are waves, waves are particles, and the physical intuition we have from our everyday life doesn't...
