Quantum Experiment Carried Out at Molecular Level


www.foxnews.com

A quantum enigma has been put to the test once again, but this time physicists have made the experiment smaller than it has ever been.

The classic double-slit experiment shows that light, electrons, atoms and some molecules are both particle-like and wave-like, a mysterious duality that has intrigued and puzzled scientists for more than a century.

Light or electrons are aimed at a solid plate with two parallel cuts in it, offering two choices: Go through the slit on the left or the slit on the right.

Subatomic particles will sometimes break the rules and go through both slits, just as a wave would.

This experiment takes the classic slit experiment to the molecular level using Xrays to split the electrons off H2. The results are similar to the classic experiment where both wave and particle behavior is observed. They say that the results give an insight into how a quantum computer might work using superposition and quantum entanglement to operate.

The work originally appeared in the Nov 9th Science Journal.
