About this title

Synopsis:

Build an intuitive understanding of the principles behindquantum mechanics through practical construction and replication oforiginal experiments

With easy-to-acquire, low-cost materials and basic knowledge ofalgebra and trigonometry, Exploring Quantum Physics throughHands-on Projects takes readers step by step through theprocess of re-creating scientific experiments that played anessential role in the creation and development of quantummechanics.

Presented in near chronological order—from discoveries ofthe early twentieth century to new material onentanglement—this book includes question- andexperiment-filled chapters on:

  • Light as a Wave
  • Light as Particles
  • Atoms and Radioactivity
  • The Principle of Quantum Physics
  • Wave/Particle Duality
  • The Uncertainty Principle
  • Schrödinger (and his Zombie Cat)
  • Entanglement

From simple measurements of Planck's constant to testingviolations of Bell's inequalities using entangled photons,Exploring Quantum Physics through Hands-on Projects not onlyimmerses readers in the process of quantum mechanics, it providesinsight into the history of the field—how the theories anddiscoveries apply to our world not only today, but alsotomorrow.

By immersing readers in groundbreaking experiments that can beperformed at home, school, or in the lab, this first-ever, hands-onbook successfully demystifies the world of quantum physics for allwho seek to explore it—from science enthusiasts and undergradphysics students to practicing physicists and engineers.
