Weekly Papers on Quantum Foundations (24)

First Demonstration of Antimatter Quantum Interferometry. (arXiv:1906.08665v1 [quant-ph])  quant-ph updates on on 2019-6-21 2:06am GMT Authors: M. Giammarchi This paper descrives the first experimental evidence of antimatter-wave interference, a process at the heart of Quantum Physics and its interpretation. For the case of ordinary matter particles, interference phenomena have been observed in a variety of cases, ranging to electrons up… Read more →

How to make a quantum black hole with ultra-cold gases. (arXiv:1709.07189v1 [cond-mat.quant-gas])  hep-th updates on on 2017-9-22 12:53am GMT Authors: Ippei Danshita, Masanori Hanada, Masaki Tezuka The realization of quantum field theories on an optical lattice is an important subject toward the quantum simulation. We argue that such efforts would lead to the experimental realizations of quantum black holes. The basic idea… Read more →

History of Quantum Mechanics or the Comedy of Errors

Jean Bricmont (IRMP, Universite catholique de Louvain) The goal of this paper is to explain how the views of Albert Einstein, John Bell and others, about nonlocality and the conceptual issues raised by quantum mechanics, have been rather systematically misunderstood by the majority of physicists.

What did Bell really prove?

Jean Bricmont Submitted to “Quantum Nonlocality and Reality – 50 Years of Bell’s theorem” The goal of this paper is to give a pedagogical introduction to Bell’s theorem and its implication for our view of the physical world, in particular how it establishes the existence of non local effects or of actions at a distance. We also discuss several misunderstandings… Read more →
