Physicists Can Predict the Jumps of Schrodinger’s Cat (and Finally Save It) – Slashdot

  • Org: Yale researchers have figured out how to catch and save Schrodinger’s famous cat, the symbol of quantum superposition and unpredictability.
  • In the process, they overturn years of cornerstone dogma in quantum physics.
  • Schrodinger’s cat is a well-known paradox used to illustrate the concept of superposition — the ability for two opposite states to exist simultaneously — and unpredictability in quantum physics.
  • Microwave radiation stirs the artificial atom as it is simultaneously being observed, resulting in quantum jumps.
