Researchers at the research center QUANTOP at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen have constructed an atomic magnetometer, which has achieved the highest sensitivity allowed by quantum mechanics.
New light shed on old dispute between Einstein and Bohr
18 January 2010
In classical physics there are no uncertainties – the properties of matter on an atomic level are deterministic, that is to say predetermined. The theories of quantum mechanics, however, only say something about how...
