When a photon excites an electron within plant chromophores , the transport of energy (without transporting net electric charge) resembles an exciton  condensate. “Chromophores … can pass energy between them in the form of excitons to a reaction center where energy can be used, kind of like a group of people passing a ball… Continue reading Quantum biology – excitons in plant chromophores
[Draft] A recent Caltech News article profiles some research in squeezed states of light. And why that is useful. • Wiki > Squeezed coherent state • Wiki > Squeezed states of light (quote) In quantum physics, light is in a squeezed state if its electric field strength Ԑ for some phases ϑ has a quantum… Continue reading What is ‘squeezed light’?
[“Quantum foundations” series] [Updated December 2019] Introduction to this topic If Murray Gell-Mann was right that Niels Bohr brainwashed a generation of physicists to accept the Copenhagen Interpretation, either his influence has waned or he didn’t do a very good job in the first place. For in an informal poll conducted at an international meeting… Continue reading Quantum reality, quantum worlds – new book explores quantum foundations
