Credible reasons are presented to reveal that many of the lingering century old enigmas, surrounding the behavior of at least an individual quantum particle, can be comprehended in terms of an… Expand

The theoretical demonstration that the best sensitivity for the measurement of small displacements of a beam – or of the distance between two incoherent beams – is reached when an intensity measurement is made on the Hermite-Gaussian mode basis is made.Expand

We have measured the forbidden 2 S1 → 2 P1 transition at 887 nm in a quantum degenerate gas of metastable He atoms confined in an optical dipole trap. The determined transition frequency is 338 133… Expand

South Korean high school students are being taught Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity. In this article, I examine the portrayal of this theory in South Korean high school physics textbooks and… Expand
