  • The Stern-Gerlach effect, discovered a century ago, has become a paradigm of quantum mechanics. Surprisingly there has been little evidence that the original scheme with freely propagating atoms exposed to gradients from macroscopic magnets is a fully coherent quantum process. Specifically, no full-loop Stern-Gerlach interferometer has been realized with the scheme as envisioned decades ago. Furthermore, several theoretical studies have explained why such an interferometer is a formidable… CONTINUE READING
