    Trends in Computer Architecture Since the introduction of the first computer, the search for computer architecture that is faster, smaller, and more efficient has been a constant goal of the computer industry. The first computers were large, heavy machines composed of thousands of vacuum tubes. The development of the transistor created the next evolution in computer architecture, the microchip. This is the architecture used in the current generation of computers. Like its vacuum tube predecessor...

    Sam Vaknin's Psychology, Philosophy, Economics and Foreign Affairs Web Sites Arguably the most onerous philosophical question attached to Quantum Mechanics (QM) is that of Measurement. The accepted (a. k. a. Copenhagen) Interpretation of QM says that our very act of conscious, intelligent, observable measurement determines the outcome of the measurement in the quantum (microcosmic) realm. The wave function (which describes the co-existing, super positioned, states of the system) collapses follow...
  • Werner Heisenberg Quantum Mechanics

    Werner Heisenberg One cannot fully appreciate the work of Werner Heisenberg unless one examines his contributions in the context of the time in which he lived. Werner Karl Heisenberg was born in Wuerzburg, Germany, on December 5, 1901, and grew up in academic surroundings, in a household devoted to the humanities. His father was a professor at the University of Munich and undoubtedly greatly influenced young Werner, who was a student at the Maximilian Gymnasium. Heisenberg had the opportunity to...
  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Quantum Optical Work
    531 words
    The measurement of nuclear and electron magnetic resonance on bulk materials was made possible by Felix Bloch and Edward Purcell and in 1952 they shared the Nobel Prize in Physics for their work. Until then, magnetic resonance was a measurable phenomena in which atoms were shot through a magnet as a beam. This was the work of Rabi. Therefore, the Nobel Prize quality in Bloch and Purcell's work was not in the theory of magnetic resonance itself, but in the development of instruments which would m...

    Overview In the past two decades, Quantum Corp. of Milpitas, California, has become one of the leaders in the design, manufacturing, and marketing of digital storage products including hard disk drives and digital tapes. By following its own path and making decisions criticized by the rest of the industry, Quantum has managed, not only to survive in an industry that has destroyed lesser companies, but to thrive and be recognized as one of the industry's quality leaders. Quantum Corporation was f...

  • The Quantum Theory Einstein Bohr Believed
    319 words
    The Quantum Theory The quantum theory is the concept that energy is absorbed in a small pocket called a quantum, which in some situations behaves as particles of matter do. While particles, when in motion, exhibit certain wavelike properties. The quantum theory proposed a dual nature for particles and waves, with one aspect predominating in some situations and the other aspect predominating in other situations. This theory posed great conflict within the scientific community. One of the biggest...
  • Religion Physics And A Social
    1,279 words
    The key to humanities freedom lies in its religious and sexual paradigms. Religion, as a social control mechanism, has sought to limit mans sexual freedom. The stigma associated with sexual promiscuity permeates every level of our society. I believe that in time people will demand freedom in the sexual and spiritual aspects of their lives. In order for this to occur a paradigm must be established that emphasizes wholism. Without this wholistic thought conflict can still exist and dogmatic religi...
  • Quantum Vs Classical Mechanics
    558 words
    Classical and Quantum mechanics are the two main fields of mechanics in physics. Classical mechanics came a few hundred years before Quantum mechanics. Subsequently it is less accurate and less reliable then the more recent mechanic field of Quantum mechanics. Despite being outdated, Classical mechanics can still be used for many everyday problems with bigger and slower moving objects. However, when dealing with extremely fast moving or small subatomic particles a Classical approach will not pr...

    John Wise Edwards Honors English II: B 21 February 1996 Scientific Advancements Due to Relativity The scientific world of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century believed they discovered all of the laws and equations of the natural world. Those scientists based their works and studies on the rules of classical physics. Only a few humans remained as revolutionary thinkers and physicists within the community of that time period. Albert Einstein fell into the rare revolutionary group of ima...
  • Superstrings Black Hole

    String theory is one of the most exciting and profound developments in modern theoretical physics. Unfortunately it is a highly technical subject that can only be well understood using the tools of Quantum Field Theory. It also doesn't hurt to know some mathematics like Group Theory, Differential Geometry, and Algebraic Geometry. Needless to say this is prohibitive for most people who are far too busy doing other things. String theory is to be a theory of quantum gravity, then the average size o...

    While researching quantum physics, I realized that I had just finished a book that was based on quantum theory. At the time, I didn t quite realize that quantum theory and quantum physics were related except in name. Niels Bohr once said, Anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it. He believed this because quantum physics makes the common laws of classical physics false on small scales. First, quantum physics is the physics of the incredibly small. It tries to explain the...

    B E C: The New Phase of Matter A new phase of matter has been discovered seventy years after Albert Einstein predicted it's existence. In this new state of matter, atoms do not move around like they would in an ordinary gas condensate. The atoms move in lock step with one another and have identical quantum properties. This will make it easier for physicists to research the mysterious properties of quantum mechanics. It was named 'Molecule of the Year' because it was such a major discovery, but i...
  • Bohr At The Rutherford Lab

    Bohr at the Rutherford Lab Everyone at the time imagined the atom as a "plum pudding." That is, it was roughly the same thing throughout, with negatively charged electrons scattered about in it like raisins in a pudding. As part of an experiment with x-rays in 1909, Rutherford was shooting a beam of alpha particles at a sheet of gold foil only 1/3000 of an inch thick, and tracing the particles' paths. Most of the particles went right through the foil, which would be expected if the atoms in the ...

    Development of Quantum Theory - Historical Perspective Quantum theory, the modern physical theory concerned with the emission and absorption of energy by matter and with the motion of material particles, is one of the most important theories devised in the 20 th century. The theory is revolutionary as it replaces classical physics in the description of events at the microscopic level and now the theory provides the foundation for modern physics and chemistry.
