Julian Voss-Andreae's "Quantum Objects"
Physicist/sculptor Julian Voss-Andreae has created a series of "Quantum Objects" - sculptures that attempt to capture the meaning of fundamental quantum physics concept, such as particle spin, wave/particle duality, and uncertainty.
Quantum Physics: An Overview
This overview of the different aspects of quantum physics is intended to provide some perspective to those new to the subject, so that they can further explore the wonders inherent in this miraculous realm.
Quantum Physics Books
Quantum physics is one of the most complex concepts in modern physics and a number of books have come out in an effort to explain these quantum concepts to the general public. Here are some of them.
What is Quantum Entanglement?
One of the key principles in quantum physics is the idea of quantum entanglement, where multiple objects exist in states that are linked together
What is Quantum Levitation (and How Does It Work)?
It has long been a dream of science (or, at least, science fiction) to create machines that could fly and levitate. This can be done with magnets, of course, but takes a great deal of energy. In recent years, the new phenomenon of quantum levitation has given some possible hope that levitation may be more practical than previously believed.
What is the Casimir Effect?
The Casimir Effect is one of those curious behaviors predicted by quantum mechanics and experimentally verified. In this strange situation, the energy of "empty space" actually performs work on physical objects!
Definition of the EPR Paradox
What are the Fundamental Forces of Physics?
An overview of the four fundamental forces of physics and why they are so fundamental.
New Scientist: Quantum World
New Scientist provides this useful resource on the "Quantum World," which includes a number of news reports relating to quantum physics.
What is the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle?
What is the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle? This amazing principle is at the heart of one of the most unusual aspects of quantum physics, the idea that it's not possible to acquire an infinite degree of precision when measuring certain physical quantities. How and why does it work this way?
Visual Quantum Mechanics
This website of the Kansas State University Physics Education Research Group provides information on quantum physics, including simulations, geared toward the non-science student. It requires Macromedia Shockwave to fully view the site.
Renormalization Made Easy
John Baez has written this article to provide a "gut-level understanding" on the topic of renormalization in quantum field theory. It assumes knowledge of quantum physics which is, at least, advanced undergraduate level.
Quantum Enigma: Physics Encounters Consciousness
In Quantum Enigma: Physics Encounters Consciousness, two physics professors explore the "skeleton in the closet" of quantum physics. What is the role of the observer, a conscious observer, in quantum theory? In lucid terms, the authors outline the issues and debates surrounding the quantum enigma.
Journal: Classical & Quantum Gravity
This online journal provides current research in both classical and quantum gravity free to the public.
What is the Higgs Field?
What is the Higgs field? It's the theoretical field that supposedly gives fundamental particles their mass. On July 4, 2012, CERN physicists indicated that they may have found experimental evidence of it.
