Temporal binding: digging into animal minds through time perception 上午8:00 | Latest Results for Synthese Abstract Temporal binding is the phenomenon in which events related as cause and effect are perceived by humans to be closer in time than they actually are (Haggard et al. in Nat Neurosci 5(4):382–385, 2002, https://doi.org/10.1038/nn827). Despite the fact that temporal binding experiments with humans… Read more →

A historical review and Bibliometric analysis of research on Weak measurement research over the past decades based on Biblioshiny. (arXiv:2108.11375v1 [cs.DL]) 上午9:55 | Jing-Hui Huang, Xue-Ying Duan, Fei-Fan He, Guang-Jun Wang, Xiang-Yun Hu | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Weak measurement has enabled fundamental studies in both experiment and theory of quantum measurement. Numerous researches have indicated that weak measurements have… Read more →

Is the problem of molecular structure just the quantum measurement problem? Foundations of Chemistry (2021) Sebastian Fortin & Olimpia Lombardi Abstract In a recent article entitled “The problem of molecular structure just is the measurement problem”, Alexander Franklin and Vanessa Seifert argue that insofar as the quantum measurement problem is solved, the problems of molecular structure are resolved as well….

Observing a Topological Transition in Weak-Measurement-Induced Geometric Phases. (arXiv:2102.05660v1 [quant-ph]) 上午10:05 | Yunzhao Wang, Kyrylo Snizhko, Alessandro Romito, Yuval Gefen, Kater Murch | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Measurement plays a quintessential role in the control of quantum systems. Beyond initialization and readout which pertain to projective measurements, weak measurements in particular, through their back-action on the system, may enable various… Read more →

A Note on Hierarchy of Quantum Measurement Incompatibilities. (arXiv:2001.11326v1 [quant-ph]) 上午9:26 | Bao-Zhi Sun, hi-Xi Wang, Xianqing Li-Jost, Shao-Ming Fei | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org The quantum measurement incompatibility is a distinctive feature of quantum mechanics. We investigate the incompatibility of a set of general measurements and classify the incompatibility by the hierarchy of compatibilities of its subsets. By using… Read more →

An experimental Scheme for Gravitational Scattering in Microscale: The effect of spatial superposition of mass on the microstructure of space-time. (arXiv:1905.00484v1 [quant-ph])  quant-ph updates on arXiv.org on 2019-5-04 10:15am GMT Authors: Sahar Sahebdivan In this paper, we are exploring the feasibility of observing non-classical features of gravity in a low-energy regime in a quantum optomechanical experiment. If gravity is to have… Read more →

A new kind of cyclic universe. (arXiv:1904.08022v1 [gr-qc] CROSS LISTED)  hep-th updates on arXiv.org on 2019-4-20 12:59am GMT Authors: Anna Ijjas, Paul J. Steinhardt Combining intervals of ekpyrotic (ultra-slow) contraction with a (non-singular) classical bounce naturally leads to a novel cyclic theory of the universe in which the Hubble parameter, energy density and temperature oscillate periodically, but the scale factor grows by… Read more →
