The quantum mechanical phenomenon
of tunneling, which allows a system to go from one state to another through a region that is classically forbidden, has been observed since the early days of quantum mechanics.
The BIAcore system is a biosensor that utilizes the quantum mechanical phenomenon
of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) to detect and analyze the interactions of biomolecules.
Objective: The rupture of an Aortic Aneurysm (AA), which is often lethal, is a mechanical phenomenon
that occurs when the wall stress state exceeds the local strength of the tissue.
To explain the findings, the researchers propose that a quantum mechanical phenomenon
, known as 'quantum tunnelling', is revving up the chemical reaction.
For the first time, scientists at IBM Research have demonstrated a complex quantum mechanical phenomenon
known as Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC), using a luminescent polymer (plastic) similar to the materials in light emitting displays used in many of today's smartphones.
Researchers at the Ohio State University describe the detection of an effect that converts heat into a quantum mechanical phenomenon
- known as spin - in a semiconductor.
That could cause their nuclear spins to be linked via a quantum mechanical phenomenon
known as spin coupling or coherence.
