The new kind of a cat of Schrödinger is found


Scientists of the University of Exeter have found out that the nanodimensional thermometers taking temperature of tiny objects can be influenced by the principle of uncertainty of Heisenberg. As a result of quantum fluktation of the device will be in superposition between various indicators of temperatures that makes them similar to Schrödinger's cat. It is reported in the press release on EurekAlert!. The cat (in the original — a cat) represents a being from a mental experiment of the Austrian scientist Ervin Schrödinger. The animal is in a box, and it is possible to learn his state (the cat is alive or dead), having opened him. In application to quantum mechanics it means that measurement process (opening of a box) allocates one of a set of conditions of a cat (dead or live). Before measurement the cat is considered not live and not dead — he is in imposing (superposition) of these states. According to scientists, in certain conditions of the indication of thermometers will be subject to quantum effects and as well as Schrödinger's cat, there will be in superposition of two various temperatures, for example 90,5 and 89,5 degrees Celsius. Researchers hope that results of work will help to create the exact nanothermometers considering the principles of uncertainty. It is more than important news in Film of Day Telegram-channel.
