Quantum: Einstein, Bohr and the Great Debate About the Nature of Reality

“A lucid account of quantum conception (and why you might want to care) mixed with a gripping narrative. ”—San Francisco Chronicle

Quantum conception is bizarre. As Niels Bohr acknowledged, in the event you weren’t stunned through quantum conception, you didn’t quite realize it. for many humans, quantum idea is synonymous with mysterious, impenetrable technology. and in reality for a few years it was once both baffling for scientists themselves. during this travel de strength of technological know-how historical past, Manjit Kumar supplies a dramatic and fantastically written account of this primary clinical revolution, concentrating on the significant clash among Einstein and Bohr over the character of truth and the soul of technological know-how. This revelatory ebook takes an in depth examine the golden age of physics, the bright younger minds at its core—and how an concept ignited the best highbrow debate of the 20 th century. sixteen pages of photos.

High temperature superconductors (HTS) for energy applications

Hot temperature superconductors (HTS) supply many merits via their software in electric platforms, together with excessive potency functionality and excessive throughput with low electric losses. whereas cryogenic cooling and precision fabrics manufacture is needed to accomplish this objective, rate rate reductions with out major functionality loss are being accomplished via complicated layout, improvement and manufacture of HTS gear.

For increasing frequency, the absorption coefficient shows a general decline but exhibits an abrupt increase when the x-ray photon energy becomes large enough to remove an electron from an inner shell.

Allen, Phvs. Rev. 1 I 1 I 111111 10 5 I , 1 I 50 1 I-NJ 100 ' I 300 Frequency v (101" Hz) falling back into their original state after being temporarily dislodged, whereas the x-ray emission comes from an outer electron falling into the vacancy created by the complete ejection of an inner electron from the atom.

B) Bragg reflection. Constructive interference among atoms in a single plane requires the angle of reflection to equal the angle of incidence. Constructive interferIncident ence among planes x rays requires nA = 2d sin 0. Thus x rays of given wavelength will be strongly reflected by the array only for particular values of 0. 32 The original analysis by von Laue treated the problem, as basically one must, in terms of the scattering of an incident x-ray beam by all the individual atoms in the three-dimensional lattice that makes up a crystal.

21' He forced a connection between the Einstein relation E = liv for photons and the Newtonian picture of electrons in orbits around the atomic nucleus. Bohr's two main postulates were the following: 1. " I n any one of these states the electrons perform orbital motions according to the laws of Newtonian mechanics, but (contrary to the predictions of classical electromagnetism) do not radiate so long as they remain in fixed orbits. 2. When the atom passes from one stationary state to another, corresponding to a change of orbit (a "quantum jump") by one of the electrons in the atom, radiation is emitted in the form of a photon.
